Two Muslim Somali Refugees Arrested at Tucson Airport For Conspiring to Provide Material Support to ISIS

The Feds arrested Ahmed Mahad Mohamed, 21, and Abdi Yemani Hussein, 20, at Tucson International Airport on Friday for conspiring to provide material support to ISIS.

Both men came to the United States as refugees from Somalia, according to the US Attorney for the District of Arizona– apparently Ilhan Omar’s homeland isn’t sending their best.

But the media says all refugees are poor innocent women and children looking for a better life.

One of the jihadists wrote to the undercover FBI agent that he ‘had a thirst for blood’ and that he was looking forward to beheading people.

“I love jihad so much,” Mohamed told the second undercover agent in December, “If I go to Syria I want to be the beheading person….I want to kill them so many I am thirsty their blood.”

The other jihadist, Hussein, told the FBI that he wanted to be on the front lines because he wanted to “kill so many people.”

The DOJ announced:

According to the criminal complaint, the defendants had been in communication with an FBI undercover employee whom they believed was a supporter of ISIS ideology. These communications revealed the defendants’ desire to travel overseas in order to fight on behalf of ISIS or to conduct an attack within the United States if they were unable to travel. Ultimately, the defendants purchased airline tickets to travel to Egypt, with the intention to travel on to Sinai and join ISIS. FBI agents arrested Mohamed and Hussein after they checked in for their flight at the Tucson International Airport in Arizona.

Why were these two jihadists allowed in this country in the first place?
