The Border Patrol reported:

 Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents arrested a group of 11 Iranian citizens who illegally crossed the border into the United States Monday evening.

At approximately 6 p.m., BP agents encountered the group near San Luis, Arizona, on a bridge near County 21st Street and the Salinity Canal.  Agents determined the group had illegally crossed the international border into the U.S.  The group was arrested and taken to Yuma Station for processing.  The five females and six males are were [sic] all from Iran, a Special Interest Country…

…For the last two fiscal years, Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents have led the nation in apprehending illegal crossers from Iran.  Yuma Sector agents apprehended eight Iranian nationals in FY2020, compared to just 14 from all other border patrol sectors combined.  So far in FY2021, Yuma Sector agents have apprehend 14 nationals from Iran.

US Border Patrol press release

The Biden Administration faces lawsuits over their moratorium on deportations from Arizona and Texas.

The 100-Day Pause on Deportations includes those charged with or convicted of a crime. Law enforcement officials have told our office they are concerned about whether released individuals are being tested for COVID-19.

AZ Attorney General Mark Brnovich

As we previously reported, Texas Judge Drew Tipton issued a temporary injunction against Biden’s moratorium. It was only to last two weeks. It is unclear how Biden will view this case about the Iranians, if he’s even told about it.

The Border Patrol encounters people from all over the world on a regular basis. Iran is a “special interest” country because of the terrorism their government sponsors. The danger to the United States, whether by disease or terror is real. Open borders are a huge national security issue.
