Or at least he says he is Kenyan. We get a lot of “refugees” and other legal immigrants who pass through Kenya, but are not really Kenyans. We don’t know how this one—Jacob Mugambi Muriithi—got here, but thought this needed to be posted.
3,972 supposed refugees came to us through Kenya this fiscal year alone. Kenyans themselves are not considered eligible for refugee resettlement or asylum because their country is relatively stable (except of course if you are the Aunt and Uncle of President Obama!). Through what legal program did this Muslim get here?
From The Oklahoman (hat tip: Julia):
In a bizarre coincidence, a fired Oklahoma City nursing home employee was arrested Friday after a co-worker reported he threatened to cut her head off.
Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, is being held in the Oklahoma County jail on a terrorism complaint. His bail is set at $1 million.
“We take these threats very seriously,” Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said.
The arrest came on the same day police in Moore revealed fired Vaughan Foods worker Alton Alexander Nolen beheaded a co-worker after he was fired Thursday. Nolen is a Muslim convert.
Muriithi was identified as a native of Kenya who is living in Oklahoma City. He worked at Bellevue Nursing Home in northwest Oklahoma City, police reported.
The co-worker reported Muriithi threatened her while they were both working at the nursing home Sept. 19, a police detective wrote in an arrest warrant affidavit.
The woman was not identified.
She said Muriithi identified himself as a Muslim and said he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians,” the detective told a judge in the affidavit. The two had not worked together before.
If anyone finds out more about Muriithi’s immigration status, let us know!
By the way, we do take a lot of refugees with mental health issues as we have documented in our “health issues category.”
