Iranians Could Be Radicalizing Mexicans; Border Patrol Letting In Aliens With ‘Credible Fear’ Of Cartels

0 Shares

Reports indicate that an Iranian outreach program is targeting young adults from countries south of the American border. The program is responsible for sending hundreds of Latin Americans to the Middle Eastern nation for “intensive Spanish-language instruction in Iranian religion and culture,” and is heavily supervised by a man who is wanted internationally on terrorism charges.

According to U.S. officials, the initiative is part of an Iranian government sponsored plot to gain influence in the Western Hemisphere by building an army of supporters in the U.S.’s backyard.

Via The Washington Post:

…The initiative includes not only the recruitment of foreign students for special study inside Iran, but also direct outreach to Latin countries through the construction of mosques and cultural centers and, beginning last year, a new cable-TV network that broadcasts Iranian programming in Spanish.

Regional experts say such “soft power” initiatives are mainly political, intended in particular to strengthen Tehran’s foothold in countries such as Venezuela and Ecuador, which share similar anti-American views. But in some cases, Iranian officials have sought to enlist Latin Americans for espionage and even hacking operations targeting U.S. computer systems, according to U.S. and Latin American law-enforcement and intelligence officials.

A report issued in May by an Argentine prosecutor cited evidence of “local clandestine intelligence networks” organized by Iran in several South American countries.

Singled out in the report is an Iranian cleric and government official, Mohsen Rabbani, who runs several programs in Iran for Latin American students…

…Rabbani has made no secret of his interest in drawing in young Latin Americans who admire Iran’s fiery defiance of the West. A report for Congress by IBI Consultants, a Washington-based research company that advises U.S. government agencies on Latin American terrorism and drug-trafficking networks, estimated that more than 1,000 people from the region have undergone training, mostly under Rabbani’s supervision, in Iran since 2007…

Meanwhile, a Fox­ affiliate in Pheonix, Ariz., reports that illegal aliens may be exploiting a  U.S. Customs and Border Protection loophole to get into the Nation. All the aliens have to do, according to the report, is claim that they have a “credible fear” of being attacked by Mexican drug cartels.

Nearly 200 people claimed a “credible fear” of drug cartels in a single day at the Otay Mesa crossing south of San Diego, according to the report.

Reckon they learned the immigration trick from Iranian training?

        So you don’t know the answer?

        • Vis Fac

          I gave you the answer you failed to grasp the obvious.

            Except that I know that few aurthors on this site would quote liberal sites for their story. Thanks.

          • Ron r

            I found it. One of the sources must be congressman Louie Gomer. The other I did not get his name. Thanks again.

          • Vis Fac

            Ron: That goes without saying. Liberals only defence or supporting evidence is by quoting other sources. That and blaming the other party.

    CLOSE OUR BORDER!

  • TheSilverRanger

    We need to follow Michael Savage’s advice and close the borders. Use illegal aliens to build a wall between the United States and Mexico. Hire Sheriff Joe Arpaio to oversee the project. Pay the illegals for their work in the form of a one-time worker fee. Upon finishing, repatriate them.

    • native blood

      As the wall is in it’s finishing stages, be sure the illegals are on the south side of the wall and some contract israeli and canadians finishing the job on our side. Now each state will have to maintain their own electric bill for the electric fence part of it and the land mines will have to be maintained by the military and feeding the patrol dogs will be on the federal border patrol. The moat will not be filled until the next local rain and the antivehicular ditches will be maintained by the Corps of Engineers, there, did I leave any thing out? Nah sadly, the NEOCON/NEOLIB needs more slave labour for the taxpayers to feed, clothe, medicate, educate and incarcerate. We as citizens cannot afford to feed a population that is poorly educated and has no grey matter to improve and they breed like Rats!

      • TheSilverRanger

        Smells like an obvious troll to me. Your comments are not recognized. You’ve got a lot to learn before you beat me intellectually. try again, kid.

        • native blood

          Intellectually? You make references to Michael Savage and call yourself an intellect? Kid? Heh?

          Troll?…You callin me a troll?. Go pound sand sunny. I have been dealing with border security while you were eatin’ your momma’s cookies. BTW, JTG’s comment was spot on.

      • Jimmy the Greek

        Well The israelis need to be on the south side of the wall with the mexicans !

      • Rob the man

        you are VERY intelligent.

  • Sarah Conner

    Seal the borders…NO AMNESTY EVER…

  • Dave

    Wow, slow extremist news day I see….
    You mean the United States puts out propaganda for its own self interest to people all over the world? Shocking…
    Ten you mean to tell me that others who don’t agree with the United States are doing the same thing???
    Holy surprise Batman!!!

  • Alan

    I would be willing to bet that the person advising the illegals on the so called loophole and the correct words to say are Americans, not Iranians.

  • Ranchman

    The situation with illegals coming across our southern border is totally out of control, and it’s largely due to the actions of our fraudulent president. It should be totally obvious to ANYONE today that he’s hellbent on destroying our nation and must be stopped. Ten million Americans need to descent on the White House and demand his removal. If we could organize a march like that, he’d be gone in a matter of days.
