The Mexican National Guard is reportedly on the look out for five Iranians who are allegedly attempting to gain entry into the United States. Mexican officials have have been warned by their American counterparts that within the next 48 hours, the individuals in question will attempt to cross the border into the United States with the intention of detonating a bomb.

Four males and one female, the latter believed to be the suicide bomber

Mexican authorities have confirmed to the Mexican publication Noticias Zona de Medios Globales that a liaison from the Arizona Customs and Border Protection Office notified them of the potential threat:

In the message, where César Duarte, border patrol liaison of Yuma Arizona, reports that they have received “credible information that in the next 48 hours they will attempt to cross five suicide bombers from the Middle East, on the side of San Luis Río Colorado, Sonora or Mexicali. ” According to the audio “it’s about four men and a 10-9”.

María Elena Andrade Ramírez, director of municipal Public Security, endorsed the version by stating that the Arizona Customs and Border Protection Office alerted them to the presence of Iranians, which is why the operation was activated.

Breitbart obtained a copy of the document that was transmitted to Mexican officials from the US Border Patrol. The memo claims that Homeland Security is looking for four males and one female who are attempting to gain illegal entry into the United States. They suspect the female is the intended suicide bomber. The group has traveled through Guatemala and Belize but there is no word on where they will attempt to make their crossing over the border.

Judicial Watch has also reported on the alert:

The alert was issued a few days ago by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and largely ignored by the American and Mexican mainstream media. Only a few conservative media outlets in the U.S. reported about the warning after one obtained a DHS document outlining the threat. The document, issued by the Border Patrol’s regional intelligence operation center in Arizona, says that a Guatemalan national may try to smuggle five Middle Easterners—including a suicide bomber—into the U.S. through Mexico. The smuggler and four other men and a woman transited through Guatemala and Belize before reaching Veracruz, Mexico, according to the bulletin. The Guatemalan, whose name is redacted in the government document, was deported from California a year ago. The Spanish-language article linked above elaborates that American intelligence officials received the threat after picking up recordings distributed via social media. A Mexicali news story cites Mexican authorities downplaying the situation by assuring citizens that the arrival of people from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the rest of the Americas is “something normal.”
