The Hezbollah terror group - one of the most dangerous in the world - may be planning to activate sleeper cells in New York and other big cities to stage an attack as the nuclear showdown with Iran heats up, sources told The Post.
The FBI and Justice Department have launched urgent new probes in New York and other cities targeting members of the Lebanese terror group.
Law-enforcement and intelligence officials told The Post that about a dozen hard-core supporters of Hezbollah have been identified in recent weeks as operating in the New York area.
In addition, FBI Director Mueller reported in March that the threat of Mexico as a terrorist highway is real: Hezbollah Busted in Mexican Smuggling Operation.
The Senate plans on making the threat worse, by vastly increasing the numbers of legal immigrants to 66 million over the next 20 years. Half of Mexico will likely move here of course, but the inevitably lessened scrutiny of rubber-stamped applications means that terrorists will be able to enter easily also.
