Two Iranians who are “raising red flags that they could pose a significant security threat” have been captured over the past two weeks at the American border, sources with U.S. Customs and Border Protection tell Fox News.
The identities of both Iranians appeared on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), the sources confirmed.
Meanwhile, an Iranian man in his 40s was taken into custody around 3 a.m. Sunday in Eagle Pass, Texas, becoming the fourth individual from the country to be captured since Oct. 1 in the Del Rio sector.
In fiscal year 2023, which began at the start of last October, there were 151 total hits on the TSDB through the period ending on Aug. 31.
Fiscal year 2024 is only two weeks old. In that time, the border patrol has apprehended:
- Over 30 Iranians
- Nearly 60 Syrians
- 35 Pakistanis
- Over 100 Russians
- 285 Afghans
- Nearly 2,000 Chinese
All of those countries listed above hate Israel and America.
Tensions are close to boiling over in the Middle East. Israel will likely begin a ground invasion into Gaza soon. Hezbollah could attack from the north. Iran funds and backs Hamas and Hezbollah.DONATE
