En relación con las declaraciones públicas hechas por el Gobernador de Texas Rick Perry, que se citan en inglés : “There’s the obvious great concern that, because of the condition of the (U. S. –Mexico) border from the standpoint of it not being secure and us not knowing who is penetrating across, that individuals from ISIS and other terrorist states could be — and I think there’s a very real possibility that they may have already used that”.

La Embajada de México en Estados Unidos de América emite la siguiente declaración:

“Las autoridades mexicanas no tienen indicio alguno de la presencia de grupos o individuos extremistas islamistas en México. Funcionarios de México y Estados Unidos mantienen comunicación permanente e intercambios de información y no hay indicación alguna que permita siquiera suponer lo que el Gobernador Perry ha declarado. El Departamento de Estado de Estados Unidos en su más reciente informe sobre terrorismo en el mundo, descartó la operación de grupos terroristas internacionales en México y el Pentágono en horas recientes también ha afirmado públicamente no tener indicación alguna que haga suponer que terroristas estén cruzando a Estados Unidos por la frontera con México. El Gobierno de México trabaja en el fortalecimiento constante de sus instituciones de seguridad y procuración de justicia en beneficio de la tranquilidad y el bienestar de su población e instrumenta todas las medidas posibles para impedir cualquier actividad terrorista en su territorio, en cumplimiento de la ley vigente y de sus compromisos internacionales.”

S. –Mexico) border from the standpoint of it not being secure and us not knowing who is penetrating across, that individuals from ISIS and other terrorist states could be — and I think there’s a very real possibility that they may have already used that”.

The following is a statement from the Embassy of Mexico in regard to those comments made by Governor Perry:

“Mexican authorities have no record of the presence of Islamist extremist groups or individuals in Mexico. Officials from Mexico and the United States maintain permanent contact with each other and continuously exchange information, and there is no indication that would even suggest what Governor Perry has claimed. The U.S. State Department, in its most recent report on terrorism in the world, dismissed the idea that any international terrorist groups were operating in Mexico, and in recent hours the Pentagon also publicly denied having any indication leading them to believe that terrorists are crossing into the United States from Mexico. The Government of Mexico is constantly working to strengthen our security and justice institutions in order to protect the peace and well-being of our communities, and we take all possible measures to impede any terrorist activity in our territory in compliance with existing laws and our international commitments.”
