Arizona: Refugee couple arrested, lied on refugee application, terror connection found

I first spotted this story at Arizona Central and my first thought was—-here we go again. Although labeled as “refugees,” are they going to tell us anything about the nationality of the lying husband and wife who got in to the US during the Obama Administration?

But after looking around at other stories about yesterday’s breaking news, I see we do have more information this time.  However, my big red flag question is this:

How did these alleged terrorist Africans (supposedly Ethiopians, but their names are Somali names) get to Arizona via China?


arizona welcomes refugees

I checked Wrapsnet and sure enough we do process a few refugees in to the US from China!  How insane is that! With all the refugee fraud going on around the world, why would we trust anyone (Africans no less!) coming in via China?

First, here is the AZCentral story:

Tucson refugees accused of lying about terrorist ties to gain refugee status

A Tucson couple who had obtained refugee status were arrested Friday on charges of falsifying information on an application for permanent residency, including a question that asked about ties to known members of terrorist groups.

The couple, Mohamed Abdirahman Osman, 28, and Zeinab Abdirahman Mohamed, 25, were both living in Tucson at the time of their arrest Friday.

On Wednesday, they were indicted on 11 federal criminal counts involving “violations of false swearing in an immigration matter and false statements to a government agency,” said First Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Strange in a press release.

Osman was found to have used a false name and nationality on his application for permanent residency, Strange said. In addition, he falsely denied any association with members of a terrorist organization, Strange said.

While living in China, the couple applied for and were granted refugee status in 2014 and entered the United States, living in Tucson since, Strange said.

In June 2015, Osman and Mohamed submitted applications for Legal Permanent Residence Status to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Strange said.

According to the indictment filed against the couple, the “material submitted in support of their refugee applications and their applications for Legal Permanent Residence Status contained false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements,” Strange said.

Officials did not specify what terrorist group may have been involved and provided no further details.

But another story, here, does:

Man living in Tucson was member of Somalian terrorist group, feds say


TUCSON, AZ – Federal authorities say an Ethiopian man using a fake identity while living in Tucson was a member of a terrorist group.

So much for “robust” vetting during the Obama years.  How many more Islamic al-Shabab terrorists are living among us?

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said Friday that Mohamed Abdirahman Osman was indicted in federal court on eight counts of making false statements to immigration authorities. Authorities allege his wife, Zeinab Abdirahman Mohamed, also hid his identity. She faces three charges.

An indictment filed this week shows that Osman used a fake Somalian passport to get to the U.S.

He told authorities he sustained injuries in a terrorist attack in Somalia but had actually been hurt while handling explosives, according to the indictment. Police believe Osman was a member of al-Shabab, a Somali militant group responsible for major attacks that have left hundreds killed.

Gee, maybe Trump has a point about how refugees have NOT been thoroughly vetted as the refugee industry constantly insists they have been.

See a post I wrote in 2016 listing other terrorists and violent criminals who got in to the US as refugees or asylum seekers.

  1. From what I found out about the vetting there is none at all, I believe it is the UN that picks out who they want to dump on the US taxpayers. The article that I read was by a woman that decided to find out about the vetting so she was hired by one of the organizations that bring in the so called refugees. What she found out was there is no vetting at all, the UN does no vetting they pick out who they want to send here load them on a plane headed to the US an that’s it. Like I suggested a few days ago send President Trump a letter via the White House telling him what is going on with the terrorists being allowed to enter the US ask him to put a stop to all of the so called refugees being sent to the US. Also tell him about the attacks on women in different states That’s been going on from day one.

    1. If you come to the blog directly there is a twitter icon at the end of the story. Also, do you know how to copy and past a url? If so, just copy url and go to your twitter account and paste the url with perhaps a few words of introduction. Also, you can go to my twitter feed @RefugeeWatcher and retweet my tweet of this post. So that is 3 ways!

  3. Reblogged this on The Tin Foil Hat Society and commented:
    But Trump and all the rest of us are RACIST for bringing up the fact that these “refugees” are anything but, and have no wish to integrate and assimilate, to learn our language, or to subscribe to the American way of life. Gee, I wonder if they were receiving public benefits such as food stamps, welfare, and housing assistance as well? Care to take bets on that?

  4. Thankyou f or your information and work Ann. Arizona is interesting, as our governor has the Guard still at the border, but dong only paperwork. Why? In Tucson we have 9 or more (last year) immigrant Contractors, all being paid by Washington DC., to find housing and populate our schools and welfare system.
    Arizona’s border is a real problem, we know, as we live 6 months a year for 23 yrs in Mexico. Tucson is a retirement community, lots of Christians AND Jews, and a growing population of Islam(10,000). We are asleep, and no one wants to rock the boat.

  5. For this very reason I say NO MORE IMMIGRATION OF ANY KIND AND NO MORE ASYLUM SEEKERS. We have more than enough lies that we can ever keep up with, or even hope to keep up with. NO MORE ANCHOR BABIES, THINK YOU CAN GIVE BIRTH ON THIS SOIL, THINK AGAIN BECAUSE THAT BABY DOES NOT GUARANTEE AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP. Can we not see, or are we determined to swim in our ignorance, WE DO HAVE A DISMANTLED LAND MASS!!! PEOPLE I SAY, DO NOT LOWER THE HEAD COUNT OF PEOPLE COMING HERE, TOTALLY STOP IT FROM ANY GEOGRAPHICAL COUNTRY!!! We can not possibly keep up with what we have now, and the ones that are here now, we do not even have a clue on how to shove them the hell out. WE HAVE AN NEVER ENDING MOLD IN THIS COUNTRY AND NO DISINFECTANT TO GET RID OF IT!!!

    Why would WE trust? WE weren’t making the decisions about who comes here, were we? SOMEONE abdicated this very important responsibility to a foreign power, the United Nations.

    Vetting? What vetting?
