Journalist Brandon Darby has obtained a leaked intelligence report from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that suggests a possible suicide bomber may be moving north toward the U.S.-Mexico Border from Guatemala.
Authorities are on high alert after receiving the warning.
The official report, which originated from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), has been distributed to law enforcement agencies along the border.
According to the document, on January 8, 2020, the Yuma Sector Operations Center received information from HSI about a previously deported Guatemalan national named “…” who is allegedly leading a group of four Middle Eastern males and one female to the U.S. from Mexico. The female is described as a “suspected suicide bomber.”
The report stated that according to HSI, the group already traveled through Guatemala, Belize, and is currently in Veracruz, Mexico. The described group is expected to travel to San Luis Rio Colorado in the Mexican state of Sonora, just south of Arizona.
“HSI reported they received information the group will be making entry into the U.S. through the All-American Canal in the next couple of days,” the report revealed. The All-American Canal is located in California.
ARTESIA, NM - AUGUST 03: U.S. Border Patrol trainees fire M-4 rifles during a weapons training class at the U.S. Border Patrol Academy on August 3, 2017 in Artesia, New Mexico.
