Security Beefed Up At Calif. Border Crossing Over Terrorism Threat

SAN DIEGO (CBS) — Authorities are warning of a potential threat to one of California’s border crossings with Mexico.

KNX 1070’s Tom Reopelle reports the Calexico border crossing remains open Friday amid an unconfirmed threat.

Customs and Border Protection deployed additional officers to the port to ensure safety for travelers and border personnel.

“We are working closely with our state, local and federal law enforcement partners and with teh government of Mexico,” said CBP spokeswoman Jackie Wasiluk.

“We ask our federal, state, and local partners and the public to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to local law enforcement authorities,” she added.

Information on the potential threat has not been disclosed, but the threat does originate from the Mexico side of the border, CBP officials said.

    Well, its gotta be drug related. The mayor in Michoacan was just assassinated. Its time to legalize pot and put National Guards troops at the border.

  • endgame

    thereal threat coming over the border is a mexican occult death cult of drug dealing violent parasites mixed in with the garden variety illegal aliens.

  • FalseFlag

    Another false flag threat.

    Makes me wonder what legislation this current administration wants to bestow upon the American people. it’s more like shove down Americans throats.


    No news here, just a little tail wagging the dog!

    We are totaly unpretected on our southern boarders. The simple fact that we can not stop the comon illegal Mexican crossing speaks volume!!!

    Habib is just waiting for the right time to strike.

    Mexican cartels have been runnig the show for years on the American side, so you know it’s not the Mexicans the BP are concerned about.

  • Kenneth Howell

    Could we please nuke Mexico city!

  • Rob

    Let’s see if I got this right. Governor Brown wants to open the doors to all illegals and have the California taxpayer foot the bill. Then lets go after Law enforcement because they make too much money in their retirement?
    Why did you vote him back in office? You got what you wanted and you are now surprised there might be some bad guys in the group?
    AND YES legalize pot and eliminate the black market and the cartel.

  • swhitS

    People need to read and learn about the North American Union. Then put the 2 &2 together to see why our state (alone) is on it’s way to bankruputcy and illegals are here.

  • wobbles

    Pretty pathetic that the federal government is more serious about defending South Korea’s border than our own.

  • Lex

    Too bad all our reserve units are deployed instead of gearing up to protect our borders.

  • FFL

    Yes the California Nat Guard is on the job in Kosovo! They should be on the southern boarder!

    • Rob

      I always interpreted “NATIONAL GUARD” to mean Guard OUR nation??????
      I guess the White House is the only entity that doesn’t get that concept.
