U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is reporting that as of mid-October, its agents have apprehended a total of four Iranian nationals who attempted to illegally cross into America through the nation's porous southern border.

All four Iranian nationals attempted to cross via Eagle Pass, Tex. They were then processed as "special interest aliens" due to the sensitive nature of the current conflict in the Middle East.

One of the men, in his 40s, was apprehended just this past Sunday. The other three came at other times and were deemed by the U.S. government as "having conditions that promote or protect terrorism or potentially pose some sort of national security threat to the U.S.," according to Fox News.

In addition to these four, two others, both citizens of Lebanon, were arrested in Eagle Pass, also as "special interest aliens."

"Lebanon is the home of the Hezbollah terrorist group," reports The Post Millennial. "Much like Hamas, Hezbollah is monitored as a terror group by the State Department and has taken in money from Iran."

In addition to these six individuals, another 19 Iranians and 17 Syrians have been captured and arrested at the Rio Grande Valley Sector border crossing into the U.S.
