In the wake of a failed terrorist attack on a convention in Texas, ISIS now claims it already has dozens of trained jihadists in 15 American states.

Illinois is one of them.

A new online message, presumably from ISIS claims that the group has 71 soldiers in America, and 23 of them have agreed to carry out terrorist attacks here.

The FBI says it is already aware of ISIS recruiting efforts, and it's monitoring the movements of those recruits in all 15 states.
