In seeming preparation for Islamic militants who are reportedly operating near the U.S. border in Juarez, Mexico, the Border Patrol announced it is buying body armor capable of stopping AK-47 rounds commonly used by terrorists.
The notice posted today by Customs and Border Protection states the agency is seeking a contractor who can provide 280 sets of Level III ballistic plates, which can stop 7.62x39mm rounds from AK-47s and various other rifle rounds.
These plates aren’t cheap and the timing of this large purchase comes right after a bulletin was released to federal law enforcement warning of an “imminent terrorist attack” on the wide-open U.S. border.
“Specifically, the government sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas,” wrote Judicial Watch. “Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there.”
