Sessions: Iran's influence in S. America worsens security threat posed by Obama's immigration policies
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News last week that a U.S. General's testimony on Iran's presence in South America is more evidence that President Obama's immigration policies are a threat to national security.
“Iran has established more than 80 ‘cultural centers' in a region with an extremely small Muslim population. The purported purpose of these centers is to improve Iran's image, promote Shi'a Islam, and increase Iran's political influence in the region,” Gen. Kelly told lawmakers on March 12. “As the foremost state sponsor of terrorism, Iran's involvement in the region and these cultural centers is a matter for concern, and its diplomatic, economic, and political engagement is closely monitored.”
“General Kelly's warning arrives at a time when thousands of unknown individuals continue to be caught and released at the border,” Sen. Sessions told Breitbart News. “It arrives on the heels of repeated declarations from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) caseworkers that we are ‘rubber-stamping' immigrant applications… And it arrives squarely in the midst of President Obama's unilateral suspension of our sovereign immigration laws.”
“All who hold or seek to hold elected office must work towards establishing now-absent control over our system of entry into, and exit from, the United States,” Sessions said.
Last week one of Gen. Kelly's Southcom colleagues, General Kenneth Tovo told lawmakers that Shi'a Islamist terrorist group Hezbollah is using drug cartels south of the border to fund terrorist activities in the Middle East.
