Iraqi immigrant arrested in Sacramento, suspected of lying about ties to terror groups

Shocker, not.
Keep this in mind: The  Obama administration assures governors that refugees who come to the United States in its resettlement program undergo a “rigorous security vetting process,” particularly if they are fleeing from Syria.
And yet: An Iraqi refugee, Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, was arrested in Sacramento by federal agents on a charge that he lied to immigration authorities over his ties to terror groups and travel to Syria. He is being held in the Sacramento County jail without bail.
Apparently he fought in Syria before returning to the United States in 2014. The allegations in the complaint state that Al-Jayab traveled to Syria to take up arms with terrorist organizations and concealed that conduct from immigration authorities.
The Sacramento Bee reports that Al-Jayab, 23, an Iraqi-born Palestinian, was named in a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in federal court in Sacramento and unsealed late Thursday as word of his arrest began to spread. He is to appear in federal court on Friday at 2 p.m.
“Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab allegedly traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations and lied to U.S. authorities about his activities,” U.S. Assistant Attorney General John Carlin said in a statement. “The National Security Division’s highest priority is protecting the nation from terrorism, and we will continue to hold accountable those who seek to join or aid the cause of terrorism, whether at home or abroad.”
Word of the complaint came amid reports of terror-related investigations in Milwaukee and Houston and the announcement of another Iraqi refugee being arrested in the Texas city. U.S. Attorney Ben Wagner said, “While he represented a potential safety threat, there is no indication that he planned any acts of terrorism in this country.”
The criminal complaint and 18-page supporting FBI affidavit say Al-Jayab emigrated from Syria to the United States in October 2012, where he initially lived in Tucson, Ariz., and then moved to Milwaukee before traveling overseas. While he was living in Milwaukee, Al-Jayab allegedly began communicating with individuals in Syria about traveling there and about his past experience fighting overseas, the complaint says. “America will not isolate me from my Islamic duty,” Al-Jayab allegedly wrote on April 8, 2013, to one acquaintance. “Only death will do us part. My only wish is to see you and start the action.”
Al-Jayab was interviewed several times by the FBI. And shockingly, he never admitted to ties with any terrorist organization.
Investigators say Al-Jayab received about $4,500 from an auto insurance claim in November 2013 and bought an airline ticket from Chicago to Istanbul, Turkey, from which he crossed the border into Syria. While he was overseas, he allegedly communicated with associates and relatives about traveling to Syria to join up with terror groups to fight with them. Then in January 2014, Al-Jayab returned to the United States on a flight from London to Los Angeles and, later, Sacramento, the criminal complaint states. Upon entering the country in California, the complaint states, Al-Jayab listed only Jordan and the United Kingdom on a customs form listing where he had traveled. Al-Jayab was interviewed again in October 2014 and told authorities he had gone to Turkey to visit his grandmother but said he had not provided any assistance to terror groups, the complaint states.

  1. Yes, the prez uses that one-finger ‘salute’ frequently. I wonder it means what we commonly think it means or if it is some kind of a islamic signal. As my husband says, if you find one mouse in the house, you can bet there are more, many many more. So they have actually arrested a full-blown muslim terrorist among the so-called ‘refugees.’ How many more are there? This should surprise no on. There are muslim/islamic compounds throughout the United States. Local authorities have known about them for years and most will not go within miles of these compounds. We live in evil times and my friends and I are waiting for a huge shoe to drop that will make 9/11 look like a Sunday School picnic. It will come. May the Lord have mercy.

  2. In answer to the question . . . “How safe do you feel?” I would say I am in a perpetual state of anxiety, waiting for the bottom to fall out of our world!!! I’m just glad that I am 69, and my days are limited. I grieve for young people, who through no fault of their own have been left this sorry mess to contend with. Truly I ask . . . God Bless the USA.

  3. I’m not defending him but when they say he fought with terrorist groups in Syria, were those groups the ones that o’bama backed to fight against Assad or are they saying he fought for Assad?
    It makes a BIG DIFFERENCE!

  4. What? A dune monkey LIED?
    What’s the world coming to?

  5. emigration lawyers in north america originally from troubled countries help spin fake story lines and suppress truth or records that could bar their clients family from entery. These same people including the emigration lawyers and other business people work in all the political parties campaignes to get the whites and any of their kind elected from bottom right to the top leadership positions …… then they call in the favours at a later date. In a lot of cases for laws to benefit them but also to help pull strings in stalled emigration cases to actually intervene and get the person in ….. they lie, make stuff up and leave important bad stuff out ….. once in they repay the favour and tirelessly work on the campaigne trail and the ones that can vote for any of their kind in office or the white guy that works hard on their behalf and votes matter so the politicians do what they can to keep their votes! ………. I’ve seen it I’ve been in the office of 2 emigration lawyers and two different politicians of pakistani decent …. enough was revealed in english
    i knew what was going on and because I was with a pakistani man I was doing green product business with he told me stuff ….. I know enough seen enough the koran tells them it is ok to lie cheat steal and more from an infidel ….. thats why they do it for emigration …. do whatever it takes.
