More Iranians Caught Crossing into US from Mexico as Biden Halts Building the Wall

In Yuma, Arizona alone, 14 Iranian nationals have been caught trying to cross the U.S-Mexico border illegally since November. In the whole of FY 2020, 22 Iranians were caught across the entire US-Mexico border. This is a significant escalation of illegal Iranians attempting to enter the U.S. via Mexico.

And Yuma appears to be a priority crossing point. According to American Military News (AMN):

Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents had the most arrests of illegal crossers from Iran in the nation over the last two fiscal years, the release stated. In FY 2020, eight Iranian nationals were arrested by Yuma agents, with just 14 apprehended in all other border sectors combined.

Iran is labeled a “special interest” country by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection due to its designation as a state sponsor of terrorism.

This ramp-up in Iranian activity on the U.S. southern border is occurring just as President Joe Biden is rushing to stop building the border wall created by President Trump.

As one of his first acts as President, notes AMN, Joe Biden signed an Executive Order that ended Trump’s national emergency southern border declaration and canceled border wall funding, calling the project “not a serious policy solution.”

In that order, Biden said:

My Administration is committed to ensuring that the United States has a comprehensive and humane immigration system that operates consistently with our Nation’s values. In furtherance of that commitment, I have determined that the declaration of a national emergency at our southern border in Proclamation 9844 of February 15, 2019 (Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Southern Border of the United States), was unwarranted.  It shall be the policy of my Administration that no more American taxpayer dollars be diverted to construct a border wall.  I am also directing a careful review of all resources appropriated or redirected to construct a southern border wall.

However, as the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol stated in their press release:

The primary mission of the Border Patrol is to prevent nefarious people and devices from entering the United States. Iran is a designated Special Interest Country and the agents of Yuma Sector work diligently to protect our borders for the safety of our nation,” the statement said. “Border security is national security.

How ending the construction of real border barriers and reducing the strong national focus on the border crisis by ending Trump’s national emergency declaration will help the CPB protect the border and national security, is hard to understand.

Sadly, due to Biden’s obsession with ‘open borders’ and reversing almost everything done by Trump, many more Iranians and nationals from other “special interest” countries will likely continue escalating their attempts to enter the U.S. along the southern border.

And now the Border Patrol will face the growing national security threat with reduced capabilities and resources.

Democrats are pure evil to allow these people into this country and showing no regard for Americans safety or the financial burden they cause. As the parent of a border officer I worry for all of the men and women protecting our borders. When President Trump was in office we had less worry knowing he was helping to keep them all safe. Biden doesn’t care about most Americans since most Americans didn’t vote for this garbage.

The Biden administration provides the American people with a view into a corrupt surreptitious communist regime! And the house and senate democrats and RINOS are complicit. The D.C sewer needs a thorough flush!

I hope Biden’s border enforcement includes charges of espionage, terrorism and include long sentences. In my mind’s eye, “sneaking” signals nefarious intent. Seems to me Middle Eastern nationals who sneak across our border are not only illegal aliens but possibly enemies of the state.

Except for ordinary Mexican criminals who accompany peaceable illegal aliens, Mexico isn’t feared as Iran is. Many Americans would defend the border against Iranians with gunfire. Most Americans mentally commingle Iranians with all the other Middle Eastern nationalities and aren’t surprised when they seek to terrorize.

What could be the problem of Iranians entering the US illegally? Apparently Biden and the Democrats aren’t concerned about who enters the US or stays here without permission. The absurd catch and release policy is reinstated.

Shameful……open boundaries are the gateway into USA. Showing are weakness once again. Biden/Harris has given a Big Welcome sign, to terrorism and illegal immigrants. Where’s the masks. Social distancing, they’ve been bringing diseases… (TB, Measles, Mumps, whopping cough, scaves, hand and foot disease, just a few examples) wheres the Covid out rages? **Legal immigrants are vetted. Welcoming when there not a health crisis. They contribute to hard workers and paying taxes. Self supporting. And loving there new country USA.
The materials are paid in full, nonsense to stop the remaining Boulder wall construction. Biden/Harris administration policies are job killer’s. And America citizens safety is at risk. This is crazy…..🤔

In other words, PRESIDENT Biden, Your priority is to NOT stop foreign nationals from entering our country. You DO remember 9-11, don’t you? It’s bad enough that Suadi-based terrorists entered the U.S. in order to wreak havoc on our country. NOW, we have Iranians entering the country because YOU think it is more important to grown Democrat voter rolls. Let me tell you something Mr. PRESIDENT, if one or more of these Iranians manages to set off a weapon or initiate an attack of some kind on U.S. soil, YOU will be responsible for it because you stopped construction on this VERY EFFECTIVE border wall. By the way,you DO have a wall protecting you, don’t you?

Their was a policy in nam where a helicopter would take two persons up in it. at about 5,000 feet they would start asking questions and if no answers where given the lest nervous of the two would stay on the copter and the other one would get pushed out. Then once again the questions would come out and surprisingly they would get answers.

I believe in legal immigration, not illegal immigration. We cannot save the whole world. We only need people who will make a positive contribution to our country. United States citizens should not be contributing to the support of immigrants even if they are legal; especially with the impact of the pandemic upon our economy.

Any probability some of these Iranians are hit squads attempting to get to Trump per the Ayatollah’s threat to take Trump out? If they do get to Trump does that make Biden an accessory to an assassination?
