According to a new report, two explosives were found about 30 miles from the U.S./Mexico border.
Breitbart Texas reported Monday the explosives were found near a bridge last month near Amado, Arizona, by two state Department of Transportation officials who were inspecting the bridge at the time. The explosives were made from water gel commercial explosives, according to the leaked report from the Joint Intelligence Operations Center (JIOC).
The report was filed October 24. The explosives did not have the blasting cap to become active, according to Breitbart Texas.

A federal agent who spoke to Breitbart Texas on the condition of anonymity said,
“The town of Amado is in the vicinity of a major U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint facility. It is also a major arms and drug trafficking corridor. This could have been an effort to divert law enforcement resources, or even a larger issue involving a plot to blow up the bridge.”
Amado is located 30 miles north of Nogales, Mexico.
The agent continued:
“Federal agents near the border have been experiencing a number of strange things lately. There have been several people caught filming agents and seemingly mapping out their routes and behaviors. They are following agents, soldiers, and other law enforcement personnel as they live their daily lives.”
This news comes only two days after President Obama told Bob Schieffer on CBS’ Face The Nation Sunday that if Congress does not come to a solution, he would not hesitate to take executive action on amnesty.
“I’d prefer, and still prefer, to see it done through Congress. But every day that I wait, we’re misallocating resources, we’re deporting people that shouldn’t be deported, we’re not deporting folks that are dangerous and need to be deported.”
Texas Governor-elect Greg Abbott said on Fox News Channel’s The Kelly File last week that if President Obama “crosses the line,” he would not be afraid to file a lawsuit. Texas already has 27 pending.
“And if the President crosses the line, he’s gonna see an overwhelming rejection of what he’s trying to do. And so he better not overstep his authority. If he does of course, we’ll be involved in another lawsuit against him, but… you can expect quite a strong pushback.”
