The FBI is investigating ANTIFA activists for a plot to buy guns from a Mexican cartel in order to “stage an armed rebellion” at the southern border, according to an unclassified document obtained by The Chicago Tribune.
The FBI document warns of militant Antifa activists planning to “disrupt security operations” at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The domestic terror group planned to buy guns from a Mexican cartel associate known as Cobra Commander, in order to “stage an armed rebellion at the border.”
The FBI’s report also says a group of activists in Tijuana supporting the migrant caravan “were encouraged to bring personally owned weapons to the border and the group also intended to purchase weapons from a Mexico-based cartel associate known as Cobra Commander, AKA the Mexican Rambo, and smuggle the weapons into the United States.”
The source who provided the document to the San Diego Tribune asked them not to publish the six-page manifesto because the investigation is still ongoing.
The San Diego Tribune cited two additional law enforcement officials who confirmed the news.
The FBI has informed dozens of law enforcement agencies in both Mexico and the United States of the planned attack.
The FBI sent the report marked as “priority” to agencies including the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the CIA and the National Security Administration.
Antifa is very well known for being violent, especially in protests against peaceful conservative speakers, free speech advocates, and journalists.
Former Vice President Joe Biden kicked off his 2020 campaign for president by praising Antifa. He referred them as “a courageous group of Americans.”
