Intelligence Agencies are alerting local authorities to be on the lookout for terrorists from the Islamic State crossing into the United States.

Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter confirmed the alerts saying “they were received by law enforcement agencies along the wide open border.”

The Sheriff has worked along the border for eight years and says the alerts specifies to be aware of terrorist activities, specifically involving ISIS agents being smuggled into the United States. “I received an intelligence report that said that there was ISIS cells that were active in the Juarez area, which is the northern part of the Chihuahua state, and that they were moving around over there, that there was some activity…” Painter told Fox News.

The Intel report said, “for the sheriffs along the border to be on the alert, for all law enforcement to be on the alert, and to be on the lookout for these people maybe trying to come across, they present a clear and present danger”.

However Painter was vague when asked if there is direct knowledge of an attack by ISIS may specifically be planning.  “Well I’m saying the border is wide open, there is no control on the border, it’s not shut off,” said Painter.

“There’s places along the Rio Grande you can walk across, there’s no water in it. I worked the border for eight years I walked back and forth across the Rio Grande. I was in Mexico, I was on this side. I never got challenged.”

He went on to say “There’s always a way to get across, there’s coyotes that bring those people across for thousands of dollars.”

Painter also said that “Muslim” items have been found along the border.

It is estimated that 10 to 15 million “undocumented aliens” have crossed into the United States.

“I think it’d be naive to say that (ISIS is) not here…We have found Muslim clothing, they have found Quran books that are lying on the side of the trail, so we know that there are Muslims that have come across and are being smuggled into the United States,” Painter told Fox News.

The no nonsense Sheriff had a message for any possible terrorist cells, “If they show their ugly head in our area, we’ll send them to hell,” he said. “And I think the United States needs to get busy. And they need to bomb them, they need to take them out.”

The F.B.I. did not comment on Painter’s claims.
