Iranian Military-Age Migrants Flood US Border as Middle East War Tensions Rise

A large influx of Special Interest Migrants across the US/Mexico border, including Syrian and 50 Iranian male nationals of “military age”, have been apprehended by the Border Patrol since the beginning of October as tension in the Middle East continues to escalate.

According to CBP sources, the influx of Syrian and Iranian Special Interest Migrants is concerning, considering the recent threats Iran has made to the United States.

Syrian and Iranian migrants were apprehended across the southwest border in October.

An Iranian national was arrested by the Border Patrol near Eagle Pass, Texas, on Saturday.

The Iranian national was discovered within a group of more than 300 that crossed into the small border city.

According to sources, encounters of Syrian and Iranian nationals are a major concern due to the US air strikes against Iran-linked sites in Syria.

The arrivals of Special Interest Migrants at the border have no advance intelligence warning, the source added.

“We are receiving no advance warning of the arrival of Special Interest Migrants from the region with any specificity,” the source explained.

“We are left to sort through the grab-bag of migrants in small and large groups to figure out who is in the group and why they are coming.”

In one week alone, 11 Special Interest Migrants from Middle Eastern countries were apprehended by border patrol agents.

As Breitbart reported: During the week of October 8 to October 14, Border Patrol agents apprehended six Iranian nationals, three Lebanese nationals, one Egyptian national, and one Saudi Arabian national that made landfall in Texas on the banks of the Rio Grande in the Del Rio Border Patrol Sector that includes Eagle Pass.

The Syrian and Iranian Special Interest Migrants are mostly single adult males.

This comes as a Level-4 advisory regarding travel to Syria due to terrorism was issued by the State Department

Iran is at a Level-4 travel warning, due to the risk of kidnapping and the arbitrary arrest of US citizens.

The source adds that due to the absence of significant intelligence, Special Interest migrant may pose a known threat to the United States.

Over 61,000 Special Interest Migrants were encountered by the Border Patrol in Fiscal Year 2023, Breitbart noted.

The number of migrants from Special Interest countries soured by 40 percent from Fiscal Year 2022.

In total, 86,000 Special Interest migrants have illegally entered the US in the previous two fiscal years.

According to a 2019 DHS fact sheet, the term “Significant Interest Alien” is defined as follows:

Generally, an SIA is a non-U.S. person who, based on an analysis of travel patterns, potentially poses a national security risk to the United States or its interests.

Often, such individuals or groups employ travel patterns known or evaluated to possibly have a nexus to terrorism.

DHS analysis includes an examination of travel patterns, points of origin, and/or travel segments that are tied to current assessments of national and international threat environments.

This does not mean that all SIAs are “terrorists,” but rather that the travel and behavior of such individuals indicate a possible nexus to nefarious activity (including terrorism) and, at a minimum, provide indicators that necessitate heightened screening and further investigation.

The term SIA does not indicate any specific derogatory information about the individual – and DHS has never indicated that the SIA designation means more than that.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
