12 Refugees Implicated In 2015 Terror Cases, Sessions Finds

One month later on Feb. 5, Somalia native Abdinassir Mohamud Ibrahim was sentenced to 15 years in federal prison for conspiring to provide material support to Al-Shabaab. Ibrahim entered the U.S. as a refugee in 2007 at the age of 22 by lying on his application for U.S. citizenship that he had not supported terrorists.

“Ibrahim knowingly lied in his application for naturalization as he had previously lied on his request for refugee status, falsely claiming that he was of a member of the minority Awer clan in Somalia and subject to persecution by the majority Hawiye clan,” the Justice Department wrote. “However, Ibrahim was actually a member of the Hawiye clan and not subject to persecution”

Sessions lists other refugees who have been implicated in terrorist cases this year, including: Abdullah Ramo Pazara, Ramiz Zijad Hodzic, Sedina Unkic Hodzic, Armin Harcevic, Nihad Rosic, Mediha Medy, Jasminka Ramic, Abdurahman Yasin Daud, Guled Ali Omar and Fazliddin Kurbanov.

Supporters of President Obama’s push to accept more Syrian refugees argue not one refugee who has been resettled since the 9/11 attacks has been “arrested on domestic terrorism charges.”

That claim, which The Washington Post gave two Pinocchios, stems from a story in The Economist citing data from Migration Policy Institute.

Sessions and Alabama Republican Sen. Richard Shelby are trying to stop Obama’s refugee plan by requiring Congress to vote on any future resettlement.

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
