I first spotted this story at Arizona Central and my first thought was—-here we go again. Although labeled as “refugees,” are they going to tell us anything about the nationality of the lying husband and wife who got in to the US during the Obama Administration?
But after looking around at other stories about yesterday’s breaking news, I see we do have more information this time. However, my big red flag question is this:
How did these alleged terrorist Africans (supposedly Ethiopians, but their names are Somali) get to Arizona via China?
I checked Wrapsnet and sure enough we do process a few refugees in to the U.S. from China! How insane is that! With all the refugee fraud going on around the world, why would we trust anyone (Africans no less!) coming in via China?
First, here is the AZCentral story:
A Tucson couple who had obtained refugee status were arrested Friday on charges of falsifying information on an application for permanent residency, including a question that asked about ties to known members of terrorist groups.
The couple, Mohamed Abdirahman Osman, 28, and Zeinab Abdirahman Mohamed, 25, were both living in Tucson at the time of their arrest Friday.
On Wednesday, they were indicted on 11 federal criminal counts involving “violations of false swearing in an immigration matter and false statements to a government agency,” said First Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Strange in a press release.
Osman was found to have used a false name and nationality on his application for permanent residency, Strange said. In addition, he falsely denied any association with members of a terrorist organization, Strange said.
While living in China, the couple applied for and were granted refugee status in 2014 and entered the United States, living in Tucson since, Strange said.
In June 2015, Osman and Mohamed submitted applications for Legal Permanent Residence Status to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Strange said.
According to the indictment filed against the couple, the “material submitted in support of their refugee applications and their applications for Legal Permanent Residence Status contained false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements,” Strange said.
Officials did not specify what terrorist group may have been involved and provided no further details.
But another story, here, does:
Man living in Tucson was member of Somalian terrorist group, feds say…
TUCSON, AZ – Federal authorities say an Ethiopian man using a fake identity while living in Tucson was a member of a terrorist group.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Friday that Mohamed Abdirahman Osman was indicted in federal court on eight counts of making false statements to immigration authorities. Authorities allege his wife, Zeinab Abdirahman Mohamed, also hid his identity. She faces three charges.
An indictment filed this week shows that Osman used a fake Somalian passport to get to the U.S.
He told authorities he sustained injuries in a terrorist attack in Somalia but had actually been hurt while handling explosives, according to the indictment. Police believe Osman was a member of al-Shabaab, a Somali militant group responsible for major attacks that have left hundreds killed.
Gee, maybe Trump has a point about how refugees have NOT been thoroughly vetted as the refugee industry constantly insists they have been.
See a post I wrote in 2016 listing other terrorists and violent criminals who got in to the U.S. as refugees or asylum seekers.
