Arizona: Two Somali Refugees Arrested on Terrorism Charges

Before I get to the hot news, I want to be sure you all saw my post from this morning as ‘Frauds and Crooks’ was experiencing some interruptions again today.
That post fits very nicely with this latest news as it is about Somalia, Trump and Omar, click here.
Ho-hum! These aren’t the first refugees linked to Islamic terrorism and they won’t be the last.
Arizona welcomes refugees
So much for offering an opportunity for a good life in America!
The brief story is at Fox 10 in Phoenix and it tracks the Department of Justice press release (hat tip: Joanne):

Justice Dept.: 2 refugees from Somalia arrested in Tucson, accused of providing support to ISIS

(The times are changing! Once again we are seeing the word “refugee” in a head line instead of the usual “man” or “men,” as in “Arizona men” arrested!)

PHOENIX (FOX 10) — Officials with the U.S. Department of Justice say two refugees from Somalia have been arrested in Tucson and accused of providing material support to ISIS terrorists.
In a statement, officials say Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20, were arrested at Tucson’s airport on July 26, after the two checked in for their flight to Egypt. They reportedly were trying to head to Egypt’s Sinai region to join ISIS.
According to officials, Mohamed and Hussein were talking with an FBI undercover who they believed was a supporter of ISIS ideology. In their conversations, both Mohamed and Hussein revealed they want to travel overseas in order to fight on ISIS’ behalf, or conduct an attack within the U.S. if they were unable to travel.
Investigators say at the time of the arrest, Mohamed was a lawful permanent resident of the U.S., while Hussein was still a refugee.
