US Counterterror officials see no signs of IS, al-Qaida on Southern Border

U.S. counterterrorism officials are sticking by their assessment that terror groups like Islamic State and al-Qaida are not actively trying to sneak operatives into the country from Mexico, despite claims by the White House and Homeland Security officials that "the threat is real."

"We do not see any evidence that ISIS or other Sunni terrorist groups are trying to infiltrate the southern U.S. border," a senior counterterrorism official first told VOA in November, while acknowledging the existence of "vulnerabilities at both our northern and southern borders."

Contacted again ahead of President Donald Trump's prime-time television address Tuesday on what the White House has repeatedly described as a "crisis" at the southern border, officials said there was no new information to cause their assessment to be updated.
