Terror-related arrests were made Thursday in Sacramento, Calif., and Houston, Texas. In both cases, the suspects are said to have ties to ISIS, but authorities are saying there is no immediate danger to the public.

U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced in a statement Thursday that Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, of Sacramento, a Palestinian born in Iraq, was arrested on charges that he allegedly traveled to Syria in 2013 to fight with various terrorist organizations, including Ansar al-Islam. He returned to the United States in 2014.

In Houston, the FBI arrested 24-year-old Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, also a Palestinian born in Iraq who entered the United States as an Iraqi refugee. Al Hardan allegedly attempted to provide material support and resources, including training, expert advice and assistance, and personnel (himself) to ISIS. He is also charged with lying about terrorist ties and weapons training when applying to become a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Both suspects are scheduled to appear in court tomorrow.

    Keep letting these refugees into America and not even orphans and widows will come.

    • Maryland_Malcontent

      Keep letting these refugees into America and we’ll have orphans and widows aplenty already here.

    • Lamontyoubigdummy

      I’m from Texas. It’s kids and women at the border.

      The criminals & terrorists come though our airports.

      The idiots at VOX are gonna have a panic attack trying to report it.

      Other than that? Good joke.

    • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      Uh, William, those two guys WERE orphans and widows. In Obama’s eyes.

  • Tony

    Stop the infestation of America now…….
    Seal the borders and stop Obam’s amnesty plan NOW…..

  • SameJerkDifferentName

    Gee, who could’ve seen that coming?

    • ThewlynOh ✓certifiable

      *this* is my surprised face…

  • FreedomFighter

    I do believe the FBI is on the ball. The Obama DOJ is just scratching their collective heads wondering how they can stop the FBI from doing their jobs.

  • CO2 Producer

    Pilgrimers gonna pilgrim…and train and plot for mass violence.

  • The Masked Avatar

    FBI Houston would make a good name for a tv show.

  • Grumpy

    Yeah, but he’s an Iraqi refugee not a Syrian refugee so it doesn’t count.

    Besides, that’s all Bush’s fault…

    • Lamontyoubigdummy

      That would be funny if I didn’t know Josh Earnest was gonna say it from the podium tomorrow.

  • Luv2GoFly

    The fact that our government has not suspended all immigration from Muslim nations is in fact treasonous.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    How many more San Bernardinos must we have before they get serious about this?

    • Lamontyoubigdummy

      Gun control executive order or islamic terrorism?

      Two different bowls of soup.

      One of those Obama and the Democrats ain’t gonna touch.

      Like most grown up stuff over the last seven years, we’re stuck dealing with it.

      • nc ✓s & balances

        And we have perpetual indigestion.

        • Lamontyoubigdummy

          All day, everyday.

          Like Hana and Mrs. Pinky say…embrace the suck.

    • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      You probably don’t want an honest answer to that, considering our current President…

  • Lamontyoubigdummy

    Remember.

    “Refugees are just like the Pilgrims”. – Obama

    • Curt Williamson

      Well in all fairness the pilgrims were pretty violent to their predecessors also.

    • unknown

      Respond with, “Oh, in Pilgrims you mean those evil, white, Christian men who wiped out the peaceful, nature-loving Native Americans?” then sit back and watch them squirm.

      • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ David ✓’ed out

        Good point…progressives hate the pilgrims.

  • tjp77

    Don’t worry guys, it’s just a few more widows and orphans. We’re vetting everyone and there’s no danger. Nothing to see here.

  • The_Kat ✓vilified

    So are these guys widows or orphans?

    • drw

      I’m sure we’ll find out tomorrow, just as soon as Josh gets his talking points.

    • MarciaTheMurkyMuse🌠 Variegated

      Yes.

  • Ronald Green

    We shouldn’t have to be concerned about these two being allowed to stay and not be deported… but with this administration… I’m concerned.

  • Mary Mommy Happy 2017!
  • Kevin Giltrud

    More USDA Government approved, 100% DOJ All Beef $hit Hole BS!

      Nobama’s agriculture department must be stopped

  • Victoria Richardson

    I am shocked, shocked I tell you !! (snark) the liberals and Democrats are putting our lives in danger by allowing “refugees” into the country. Obama is trying to sneak them in without Governors, lawmakers even knowing.

  • Sally Del

    So did either of them list Clock Building as a hobby on their entrance questioners?

  • LucienCordier

    What in hell is a “Palestinian born in Iraq”?

    • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

      I’ll take “Terrorists” for $500, Alex.

        Ha! The Daily Double!

        • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

          Actually, it was Art Fleming when I watched as a kid in black & white. But we won’t go back there. 😉

    • Jeff Henderson ✓Bona Fide

      When Israel offered Palestinians citizenship and they refused, many moved to other countries, but are not accepted as citizens there either. Their children are also not accepted as citizens. No anchor babies in the Arab world.

      • LucienCordier

        Ahh, I see. That’s ironic…or something…

      • Roadster73

        So, if their fellow muslims won’t accept them in their own countries even though they, for the most part, have a common language, religion and culture, why should we?

  • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

    Too bad the U.S. doesn’t have a prison on a deserted island somewhere, guarded by our military, to lock these bastards up in. Oh wait…..

    • Petrucio14

      If you’re referring to Gitmo, that isn’t a good place to lock them up. Prezy-poo is all too fond of liberally issuing get out of jail free cards to Gitmo detainees.

      • Roto ✓Intentionally Left Blank

        Yep. It’s not a good place….. anymore.

  • Maxx

    If you want a glimpse into America’s future, just glance at the recent headlines coming out of Germany.

    The puzzle pieces are coming together…just the way Obama wants it.

    • unknown

      And Germans can’t do anything about it because they have been shamed for their past sins to the point where if they stand up, someone will say, “Hey, you guys starting to act like those Nazis you once had.”

  • Cärlös Dängër ✓certifiable

    I think the “if it saves even one life…” argument could easily be made here in terms of limiting immigration and enforcing deportation of illegals.

    • Dan13

      No. It can’t. That argument is reserved for taking away 2A rights only.

      • Cärlös Dängër ✓certifiable

        It’s one of the poorest arguments to be made anyway; I wasn’t really even asserting it. If that were a justification, the government can justify essentially *anything*. Putting the populace in well-organized camps may well “save one life” but the quality of that life would scarcely be worth living.

  • dumbolcountryboy

    I’d venture a guess that their places of worship(?) are serving the needs of their flocks quite well. No scrutiny necessary.
    Too bad these aholes aren’t NRA members or conservatives so they would be more obvious to O’s Lynch (DOJ) Mob.

  • captblye

    We are being invaded by our enemies. They are putting their “boots on the ground” in this country. They are building up their “troops” right under our nose, all with the help of our own Government.

    • Suzyqpie

      Correct their boots on the ground, Muslims are supremacist misogynostic totalitarian theocrats in search of welfare to finance their supremacist misogynostic totalitarian theocracy. And the American taxpayers are expect to finance their mayhem.

  • itsatax

    “there is no public safety risk” is the new “this is not terror related”. Hollow reassurances like these have the opposite of the intended effect, like Europe’s attempt to cover-up the Islamic rapist epidemic.

    • Jeff Henderson ✓Bona Fide

      If there truly was no risk, why the arrests?

      • Petrucio14

        The risk was reduced by the arrest. Circular logic.

  • Feebes

    Sure seems like the welcome mat Is becoming a prayer rug.

    • Suzyqpie

      DHS now functions as a Welcome Wagon operation for them. Free (to the welfare predator, terrorist, anyone) meals, lodging and transportation. Where do you want to go Ackmed, I want to go to San Bernadina, OK here’s your bus ticket and a meal voucher have a good trip. DHS is folly.

  • nomorelies343

    That’s Islamophobic!

  • globalcrap

    Without law biding American weapons, we’re all targets of these terrorist fanatics.

    • Sanchez

      Seems to be Obama’s plan.

  • ThewlynOh ✓certifiable

    “no indication he planned any terrorist attacks” – this from the same people who thought “no indication of any ties or sympathies to ISIS”?

    color ME convinced!

      The “authorities” knew about Nidal Malik Hasan and the lovely Tsarnaev family of Boston, too.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ David ✓’ed out

    Wait, ISIS used the refugees Obama is letting in as cover to sneak operatives in to the US? Call me shocked. Who could have ever predicted they would try something so gosh darn sneaky?

    I live here, when they announced they were moving “refugees” here it was only a matter of time.

  • Michael the white suburbanite

    “a Palestinian born in Iraq who entered the United States as an Iraqi refugee”

    Why wasn’t he “refugeed” back to Palestine, anyway Obama’s war in Iraq is over, all Iraqis go home

    No danger to the public b/c they grabbed 2 of the 7000 that entered the country this week.
