REPORT: Somali Refugees Accused of Plotting ISIS Attack Sought U.S. Citizenship

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by BREITBART.COM:

Two Somali nationals granted refugee status in the United States are accused of attempting to join the Islamic State (ISIS) and sought to obtain American citizenship.

Last month, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that 21-year-old Ahmed Mahad Mohamed and 20-year-old Abdi Yemani Hussein — both refugees in the U.S. from Somalia — were arrested on suspicion that they were planning to join ISIS.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to court records, Mohamed and Hussein were in communication with an undercover FBI agent who they believed was a supporter of ISIS. In these communications, law enforcement officials allege that the two refugees expressed their desire to travel to Egypt to fight for ISIS or plot an attack on American citizens on behalf of ISIS.

Ultimately, the pair bought flights to Egypt in an effort to fight for ISIS but were instead arrested by federal agents at the Tuscon International Airport in Arizona.

Breitbart reported that both men first arrived in the U.S. as children of refugees from Somalia, in 2014, during the Obama administration. They were among about 54,500 Somalian refugees which were admitted into the US between 2009 and 2016.

Mohamed was approved a year after his arrival to become a green card holder, or lawful permanent resident, and was attempting to obtain his citizenship at the time of his arrest.

Hussein was in the process of requesting his green card from the U.S. government at the time of his arrest.

President Trump tweeted about the arrest of the pair shortly after it was announced. He said, “Somali refugees arrested in Tucson on way to Egypt. They were in touch with an agent posing as a terrorist. One of them stated, “The best wake up call is Islamic State to get victory or another 9/11.” Get smart people! #MAGA #KAG.”
