The U.S. Southern Command stated in an internal report that Sunni extremists might be crossing American borders with help from smugglers in South America.
A SouthCom spokeswoman did not address the report directly but told the Washington Free Beacon, "In 2015, we saw a total of 331,000 migrants enter the southwestern border between the U.S. and Mexico. Of that, we estimate more than 30,000 of those were from countries of terrorist concern."
