Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley demanded answers this week over how an ISIS fighter wanted for murder came to the United States as a “refugee” in 2014; raising serious concerns over other potential enemies currently residing in the country.
Grassley sent an official letter to Dept. of Homeland Security Director Kirstjen Nielsen Monday; asking key questions after a Sacramento man was arrested earlier this month and deported to Iraq for carrying out an attack against police officers under orders from ISIS.
“The Department of Justice recently announced the arrest of Iraqi national, Omar Abdulsattar Ameen, an alleged member of al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and ISIS who was granted refugee status and settled in Sacramento, California,” writes Grassley.
“According to witnesses interviewed by the FBI, it is common knowledge in Rawah, Iraq, that Ameen was a ‘main local figure of AQI and ISIS.’ Yet, Ameen was able to conceal this information from the United States and afforded protection here as a refugee in 2014,” he adds.
