VIA| Federal authorities just arrested two of Obama’s Muslim refugees on terror-related charges Thursday.
The arrests have happened in Sacramento, California, and Houston, Texas. They have many similarities: both were born in Iraq and were living as refugees in America, according to the Justice Department.
Both lied in their immigration process about their ties to terrorist organizations – including the Islamic State (ISIS) – which is to be expected, considering how little paperwork exists on the refugees.
Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, of Houston, is charged with attempting to provide material support to ISIS.
Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, of Sacramento is charged with making a false statement involving international terrorism.
It was not immediately clear whether Hardan or Jayab had retained legal representation. They are both scheduled to appear in court Friday.
The two cases come as some Americans worry that terrorists could enter the United States posing as refugees from war-torn nations.
That concern was amplified after the Paris terror attacks in November. ISIS claimed responsibility for those coordinated attacks on a concert hall, bars, restaurants and a sports stadium that killed 130 people.
Conservative leaders who have been speaking out against the refugee programs sounded the alarms, and noted these arrests just saved countless lives:
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said, in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas, “This is precisely why I called for a halt to refugees entering the U.S. from countries substantially controlled by terrorists.”
“I once again urge the President to halt the resettlement of these refugees in the United States until there is an effective vetting process that will ensure refugees do not compromise the safety of Americans and Texans,” the governor added.
Likewise, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick expressed the same concern that state officials have previously voiced with regard to the vetting of refugees from the Middle East.
Patrick said in a statement, “Based on the facts, as we know them, today’s action may have prevented a catastrophic terror related event in the making and saved countless lives.”
“This is exactly what we have repeatedly told the Obama administration could happen and why we do not want refugees coming to Texas,” Patrick added. “There are serious questions about who these people really are, as evidenced by [these] events.”
This should be a reminder that Obama thinks it can stop terrorist refugees simply by ASKING them if they are involved in terrorism. That is CRAZY!
America needs a real leader in the White House who will not stand for the importation of potential terrorist threats. This is what Donald Trump has been warning us about all along.
