Two ISIS recruits from Milwaukee who were trying to make it to Mexico and then go to Syria to join ISIS have been arrested in San Angelo, Texas. One of them is an illegal alien who had been living in the SANCTUARY CITY of Milwaukee. The two had converted to Islam and were radicalized over the internet. The background of the two is less than stellar with one of the two having a criminal history.
With our wide open border, this brings into focus some big problems:
Sanctuary cities harbor illegal criminals that should never be allowed into our country.
With our open border, these two could easily go to Syria and then come back to America to carry out a terror attack.
How many more ISIS terrorists have freely entered our country via our open border?
SAN ANGELO, TX – Tom Green County Sheriff David Jones confirmed Friday evening that his office, along with Texas DPS and the FBI, arrested two suspected for providing material support for ISIS. He said his agency was warned to be on the lookout for the duo by the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Jones stated that after a short time of surveillance of the duo, multiple agencies stopped and detained them as they traveled along a stretch of U.S. 87 in northern Tom Green County. The arrests happened Oct. 5. Jones said he didn’t release the information immediately pending the announcement by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. Assistant United States Attorney Paul L. Kanter in the Wisconsin office will prosecute the case.
Arrested were Jason Michael Ludke, 35, of Milwaukee. He was charged in a criminal complaint with attempting to provide material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, ISIS. His running partner was Yosvany Padilla-Conde, 30, an illegal alien living in Milwaukee. He was charged with aiding and abetting Ludke. Both face 20 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000 each.
According to the criminal complaint obtained by San Angelo LIVE!, Padilla-Conde is also known as Saadiq Ibn Abbas and Saadiq Padilla. Ludke is also known as Muhammad Nassir, Muhammad Abdun Naasir Al-Hannafi and Abuz Sayyaf.
Both Padilla-Conde and Ludke were known to the JTTF as having stated their intent to travel overseas to join ISIS. An undercover FBI agent operating in the circles where ISIS was recruiting Americans on social media received a friend request over Facebook from Ludke. Thereafter, the two engaged in an Instant Messenger conversation. Ludke told the undercover agent that he is from the U.S. and wants to make “hijra” (or migration) away from “darul kufr” (Land of the Infidel).
In a later conversation, Ludke stated he was making plans to come “there,” but, because he has a criminal history, he was traveling to Mexico first. Ludke said he had family in Mexico where he will be able to purchase papers. Ludke volunteered his email address to the undercover agent and sent him two pictures of himself.
By the end of September, Ludke asked for a voice call with the agent who was posing as a recruiter for ISIS. During the voice conversation, Ludke said he was trying to recruit a “brother” to go with him. He said his “brother” converted to Islam in 2003. Ludke also detailed his plans to use his brother-in-law in Mexico to help him get from the U.S. and into Mexico.
Ludke’s planned destination was Raqqah, Syria, and then he had plans to travel to Mosul, Iraq, the U.S. Attorney’s complaint states.
