How many more of these guys are there here? Who knows. Don’t ask the government which may occasionally bust one of them when he feels the need to advertise.
A Palestinian asylum-seeker arrested Thursday in Texas after posting videos of himself on TikTok firing weapons — including an AR-15 style rifle — was in contact with people who shared a “radical mindset” and may have been plotting an attack, federal prosecutors allege.
CAIR press conference to follow shortly, I’m sure. Complete with essays about ‘Islamophobia’. Americans can own AR-15s, why not migrants from terror states?
Sohaib Abuayyash, 20, was arrested Thursday after the FBI reviewed videos on his social media, including an Aug. 11, 2023 recording that apparently showed him firing a rifle and semi-automatic pistols at a range in Houston.
In an affidavit filed Thursday, an FBI agent wrote Abuayyash “has been in direct contact with others who share a radical mindset, has been conducting physical training, and has trained with weapons to possibly commit an attack.”
According to the affidavit, Abuayyash, a Jordanian citizen, came to the US in 2019 after applying for a tourist visa in Jerusalem and indicating he was a Palestinian citizen.
Abuayyash overstayed the visa and applied for asylum in 2020, which is still pending, the court records state. He was granted employment authorization in August 2023, which is due to expire in two years.
His citizenship is Jordanian. Jordan doesn’t like to give citizenship to people from Israeli territories even though most of the so-called Pallies are Jordanians. Yet he not only comes here with Jordanian citizenship, but he then claims to have ‘Palestinian’ citizenship, remains illegally in America, applies for asylum and is here for another 3 years, gets work authorization, and starts posting videos of himself with guns.
There are better examples of our failed immigration policy, but this is still in the running.
