Apparently new study from the Center for Immigration Studies has revealed 72 terrorist convictions right here in the U.S.

And the 72 are from the "Trump 7 List" !!

This may put a lid on the recent court that claimed no terrorist activities.

We know the government lawyers didn't provide examples when asked, but I think was on-purpose.

Let's dig.

The information is evidently from a Senate Sub-committee.


Study Reveals 72 Terrorists Came From Countries Covered by Trump Vetting Order

A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump's vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks. These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president's order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.

In June 2016 the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, released a report on individuals convicted in terror cases since 9/11. Using open sources (because the Obama administration refused to provide government records), the report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in terror cases since 9/11 were foreign-born. The report is no longer available on the Senate website, but a summary published by Fox News is available here.

The Center has obtained a copy of the information compiled by the subcommittee. The information compiled includes names of offenders, dates of conviction, terror group affiliation, federal criminal charges, sentence imposed, state of residence, and immigration history.





Somalia: 20
Yemen: 19
Iraq: 19
Syria: 7
Iran: 4
Libya: 2
Sudan: 1
Total: 72

From your source:


Thirty-three of the 72 individuals from the seven terror-associated countries were convicted of very serious terror-related crimes, and were sentenced to at least three years imprisonment. The crimes included use of a weapon of mass destruction, conspiracy to commit a terror act, material support of a terrorist or terror group, international money laundering conspiracy, possession of explosives or missiles, and unlawful possession of a machine gun.



According to the report, at least 17 individuals entered as refugees from these terror-prone countries. Three came in on student visas and one arrived on a diplomatic visa.



Wouldn't it be nice if we had a president that wanted to halt the current processes temporarily, re-evaluate our vetting methods, restructure them to be better and safer?



Also, some of these bad actors are probably being released by now. I wonder if they are staying here or going back to these countries that have sh*tty vetting in place and inadequate government oversight. Oh, well! At least some immigrant in Washington State wasn't inconvenienced with a pesky travel ban from those 7 countries.

How interesting. The Executive Director of your source is a regular contributor to all the news outlets you routinely bash as 'fake news'. So this must be fake too, huh? Can't have it both ways fox.

Wouldn't count on it X.

Trump haters have mastered the art of ignoring inconvenient truths when it doesn't fit their false narrative.

Hell they still wouldn't admit fault after of a gang of seven blew up (insert whatever).

Where did the other 508 come from?

How far back do the arrest dates go?

The question is, why do we have people in the US that want terrorists and criminal elements in the US?

Are you forgetting that domestic terrorism is caused by a lot more people that call the US home than immigrants?

Who has ever said they want terrorists in their home nation!? lol

Let's dig.

Ok. Let's dig.

Let's review that particular line of questions, ok?
 

Robart: Have there been terrorist attacks in the United States by refugees or other immigrants from the seven countries listed, since 9/11?

Robart: So you're aware of law enforcement. How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11?

Robart: Let me tell you. The answer to that is none, as best I can tell. So, I mean, you're here arguing on behalf of someone that says: We have to protect the United States from these individuals coming from these countries, and there's no support for that.
 


It seems to me that the judge was talking about arrests for terrorist attacks. Terrorist attacks within the United States.

So, how many of those arrests were for terrorist attacks within the United States?

Start digging.

Just the ones that want open borders, the ones who don't want to prosecute immigration laws, the ones protesting sending people back who have committed even further crimes.

Just those.

You looked at THIS document ?

cis.org...

That lists the name, TERRORIST affiliation, and conviction sentence ?

And their immigration status?

Does one really need anything more than CONVICTION from a DOJ report?

AMARILLO, TX—Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 22, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas, was convicted by a federal jury today on an indictment charging one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets, including persons and infrastructure.


cis.org...

Right there is a solid case for Saudi Arabia being added.

Oh wait there's a TRO so wouldn't matter if we wanted to.

Click the name of the 'defendant' and follow the links.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said: “Mohamed Ibrahim Ahmed traveled a long way from his home in Sweden to Somalia, where he took up the cause of al Shabaab, a deadly terrorist organization and sworn enemy of the United States and its people. Protecting Americans from the threat of terrorism both at home and abroad is the highest priority of this office, and today’s plea is yet another victory in that fight.”
