With each passing day, we see why Trump’s migrant ban is becoming a vital key to protecting our nation’s borders. Terrorists are coming into to our country in droves while posing as “refugees,” as they’ve quickly learned that there’s no way for our intelligence officials to determine who they really are. Now two Muslim terrorists have just been caught red-handed hanging out in America after a disturbing piece of evidence linked them to a savage kidnapping of an American citizen from several years back.
Two Iraqi refugees, brothers Yousif Al Mashhandani and Adil Hasan, were arrested and charged Monday with immigration fraud after federal authorities found out that they lied about their familial ties to Majid Al Mashhadani on their citizenship applications. The two brothers had worked closely with Mashhadani to kidnap an American back in 2004, where they kept the American and several others hostage in Iraq for over a year in horrifying conditions. Authorities discovered the alarming connection after one of the brother’s fingerprints matched a print that was found in the Iraqi underground bunker were the kidnapped hostages were discovered.
According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, on Nov. 1, 2004, a U.S. citizen, identified as R.H., was kidnapped and held with other hostages for months in horrible conditions in an underground bunker. After a raid in 2005 freed the hostages, Majid Al Mashhadani (“Majid”), who is a full biological brother of Yousif and Hasan, was detained and admitted his complicity in the kidnapping of R.H.
According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Yousif was admitted into the U.S. as a refugee in 2008. In May 2013, Yousif resided in Vienna and applied for naturalization as a U.S. citizen. In connection with Yousif’s applications for citizenship, his fingerprints were taken. According to an FBI fingerprint specialist, analysis conducted in November 2013 determined that Yousif’s fingerprints match those found on a document at the underground bunker where forces rescued R.H. and others in Iraq in 2005.
According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, to justify his application for refugee status, Hasan provided sworn testimony that, in 2006, he had been kidnapped and tortured by members of the Al Mahdi Army and held for nearly a month. Hasan said he was released upon the payment of a ransom of $20,000. In an interview by FBI agents in April 2016, Hasan said he was threatened in Iraq on two occasions, but made no mention of being kidnapped, held hostage and tortured for nearly a month. In a subsequent interview in October 2016, FBI agents confronted Hasan about the discrepancy in his stories and Hasan admitted to making false statements and creating his persecution story.
The two men, along with Hasan’s wife, Enas Ibrahim, were all living in Virginia, and were arrested for their connection to the crime, and also charged for “attempting to obtain naturalization contrary to law” after lying on their application to become U.S. citizens when failing to disclose their familial ties to the terrorist Majid Al Mashhadani.
Yet again, another shining example of why we need Trump’s migrant ban put in place immediately. Up until Monday, these terrorists were just happily hanging out in Virginia living on the American welfare system. If these idiots are willing to kidnap Americans and hold them hostage and torture them, what other acts of terror would they nonchalantly carry out on other Americans if given half the chance?
