Iran Aggressively Recruiting ‘Invisible Army’ of Latin American Converts to Infiltrate U.S. Through ‘Soft Belly’ of the Southern Border

Iran is recruiting an “invisible army” of revolutionary sympathizers in Latin America to infiltrate the U.S. through the “soft belly” of the southern border, U.S. officials and national security experts told TheBlaze. And they’re using one website in particular to do it. >>>

Jim Phillips, a senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation and expert in Iranian affairs, said Iran’s focus on Hispanic converts is a new evolution in Iranian operations in Latin America. >>>

“Historically, Iran has tried to recruit agents from the Lebanese Shi’ite diaspora in South America and West Africa,” Phillips said. ”This emphasis on Hispanic converts is something new.”

In the past, “U.S. intelligence focused on Iran’s relationship with Hezbollah but now with the people they are recruiting it could be much more difficult to gauge who is infiltrating the U.S.,” Phillips added.

Meanwhile ... Senator Diane Frankenfeinstein tells Homeland Security: Stop Enforcing Immigration Law

As Homeland Security is pre-occupied with the important stuff. You know, like monitoring Tea Party IRS demonstrations.

This has gone beyond scary to surreal. When are the American people going to wake up? If Bush had created this type of police state, using agencies to spy on ordinary citizens, with large ammunition purchases that are intended for a 'civilian police force' larger than the military, there would have been cries for impeachment. Obviously, the DOJ is monitoring Tea Party members and groups very closely. Yet, known terrorists who support 0bama get full professorships and tenure at major institutions.
