While everyone is lately concerned about a few thousand Syrians entering the US, most Americans don’t know that we have resettled over 100,000 Iraqis here since the beginning of the Obama Administration. In 2014 we admitted 20,000 and three quarters of those were Muslims.
Did you get Iraqis dropped off in your state?
Now the news on the latest radicalized refugee…...
From the Detroit News (hat tip: Joanne). You know what is very amusing (sort of), most of the other news accounts of this case yesterday left out the word “refugee” and simply said, “An Iraqi man living in East Lansing….” I guess the other media outlets went to an Obama-certified language school. Kind of like when Obama called those poor beheaded Egyptian Christians simply Egyptian “citizens.”
An Iraqi refugee living in East Lansing is facing charges for allegedly lying to federal officials about returning to the Middle East to fight with Islamic extremists.
Al-Hamzah Mohammad Jawad, 29, who has a green card, was scheduled Tuesday to fly from Detroit Metro Airport to Amman, Jordan, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court.
When U.S. Customs and Border Protection interviewed him on the jet way, personnel “became alarmed when Jawad could not explain his future travel or why he purchased a one-way ticket one day prior to his departure.”
They escorted him to an interview room and contacted an FBI special agent, the court document said.
During an interview with the agent, Jawad initially said he was traveling to visit his mother, a professor in Amman, but within minutes acknowledged his ultimate destination was “Iraq to conduct jihad” since a childhood friend recruited him to “join, train and fight with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Iraq,” the complaint said.
Federal officials said Jawad entered the U.S. as a refugee on March 18, 2013.
Here is an idea, just let these Jihadi wannabes get on the plane, but revoke their US passport. Do we really need frustrated Islamic radicals in the US or even just plain old nut cases?
