DHS Acknowledges Possibility of ISIS Planning to Infiltrate Southern Border

Wednesday at the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing on cybersecurity, the under secretary for intelligence at DHS, Francis Taylor, told Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that ISIS are using social media to plan for infiltrating the United States via the southern U.S. border.

When McCain asked about “recent reports on Twitter and Facebook of messages that would urge infiltration into the U.S. across our southwestern border.” Taylor said, “There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility.” 

“Certainly any infiltration across our border would be a threat,” Taylor added.
