Report: ISIS Suspect Planned to Open Up Route From Syria to U.S. Through Mexico
An American man accused of trying to join ISIS told investigators the brutal terrorist group wants to open routes between Syria and the U.S. via Mexico.
Prosecutors said that 21-year-old Guled Ali Omar revealed that he had conversations with ISIS members about trying to enter Syria after crossing the border into Mexico.
He then intended to share with ISIS how he would accomplish that that so that they could potentially use the same route.
Omar is one of four accomplices arrested a year ago in Minnesota for conspiring to provide material aid to ISIS.
