I received this email today from an anti-immigrant group:
According to Judicial Watch, the Feds are warning of an imminent terrorist attack from ISIL affiliated groups operating out of Ciudad Juarez in Mexico.I know this is supposed to scare us , but it is a pretty typical bit of fear-mongering designed to gun up the outrage machine and generate fundraising for right-wing groups. So , scary it isn't -- unless the prospect that there are thousands who are quite ready to believe this nonsense. That's what I find scary.
The article states, "Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat."
The article goes on to say, "These new revelations are bound to impact the current debate about the border crisis and immigration policy."
