A top US commander warns Caribbean and South American countries are unable to track 100 foreign fighters that could return from Syria.
The war in Syria has attracted roughly 100 foreign fighters from the Caribbean who could easily make their way to the United States, said the top U.S. military commander for the southern hemisphere.
With little ability to track and monitor foreign fighters when they return, it would be relatively easy for those fighters to “walk” north to the U.S. border along the same networks used to traffic drugs and humans, according to Gen. John Kelly, commander of U.S. Southern Command.
“They don’t have that ability to track these folks,” Kelly said at a Pentagon briefing on Thursday.
