Two ISIS Recruiters Caught Trying To Cross Mexican Border

This is freaky no matter how you look at it.

According to this, two ISIS recruits were found trying to cross the border into Mexico from Texas. The two were originally from Wisconsin and were apparently recruited there, which is creepy enough (ISIS recruiting in WISCONSIN, of all places). But then they guys were trying to get to Mexico to do heaven-knows what when they got there –

Two Wisconsin men have been arrested in San Angelo, Texas, on charges of providing material support to ISIS. The men were traveling to Mexico and allegedly had plans to travel on to Iraq or Syria.
Jason Michael Ludke, 35, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Yosvany Padilla-Conde, 30, an illegal alien who has been living in Wisconsin, were arrested on October 5 by Tom Green County Sheriff David Jones and a team of federal agents, according to Joe Hyde, president of San Angelo Live.

Sheriff Jones told Hyde he had received a warning from the FBI and the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) that the two suspected ISIS recruits could be heading through his county in route to Mexico. After surveilling the two men for a short time, deputies, Texas Department of Public Safety troopers, and FBI agents conducted a traffic stop and the two men were taken into custody.

Sheriff [Jones] stated Ludke was detained on an outstanding warrant from Wisconsin. His traveling companion, Padilla-Conde, having been identified asn an illegal alien, was held on immigration charges.

So here’s what we have – two ISIS recruits from the Midwest area of the United States, helping ISIS AND trying to get to Syria through Mexico. Which means there are probably ISIS fighters coming into the US from Mexico (apparently, the border’s open both ways for these guys).
