No, Congressman Duncan Hunter, Jr., there are no ISIS fighters sneaking across the U.S. border.
On Tuesday night, Representative Duncan Hunter, a Republican from California, took those comments even further. Appearing on “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren,” Hunter said, “At least ten ISIS fighters have been caught coming across the border in Texas.” When Van Susteren asked how he knew that, Hunter replied, “Because I’ve asked the border patrol, Greta.”
To which the Department of Homeland Security replied:
“The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground,” said DHS spokesperson Marsha Catron. “DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border.”
To which Rep. Hunter replied in essence, “Well, of course they’d deny it. They don’t know what they’re doing, and besides, why should we believe anything they say?”
At this point you start looking for a large baseball bat or a sock filled with horse manure.
