Obama Immigration Policy Allowed Saudi Muslim Qaeda Fan on Flight After Drunk Driving, Attempted Murder
Yesterday, I told you about the dry run/testing the system episode featuring a Saudi Muslim on a Continental Airline flight on Tuesday night. The man yelled, “allahu akhbar,” sang in praise of Osama Bin Laden (hey, buddy, he’s dead!), and yelled about his hatred of women. Now, we’re learning more about this Islamo-thug, including that the man is an illegal alien. It’s yet more proof that the Obama/Bush immigration policy of not arresting illegal aliens without criminal records is a failure. It’s also evidence that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents under Obama aren’t even allowed to follow that policy. If they were, Yazeed Mohammed Abunayyan would never have been on that flight. He led police on a drunk driving chase Sunday Night in Oregon, in which he deliberately rammed into two police cars and tried to murder innocent people.
So, why was he allowed to bond out of jail and fly around the country? I’d bet the ranch that his bond agreement required him to stay in Oregon. And I’d also bet he didn’t seek a judge’s order allowing him to fly out of the state. Was he planning to flee the U.S. and avoid justice, once he got to Houston, the final destination of the flight?
Abunayyan is a Saudi national and not a U.S. citizen, something the federal indictment of him goes to great pains to avoid discussing. It isn’t clear if he’s here legally on a visa or not. Regardless, once he led police on a drunk driving car chase and crashed into their cars, he was clearly in criminal violation of any visa on which he could possibly be in the United States, making him an illegal alien whether he had a visa or not. And he should have never been granted bond of any sort, as it’s in complete contravention of U.S. immigration laws.
Why was he not turned over to ICE? Why didn’t ICE take him? I’ve heard of so many situations in which ICE has been called to pick up illegal aliens like him, and they decline. And I wonder what actually happened here. Did Oregon police contact ICE? If they didn’t, that’s another Barack Obama failure. Obama just canceled a program that trained local police on how to identify illegal aliens and turn them over to ICE for deportation, and as I first reported here, Obama hired a clown who opposed immigration enforcement to run the program into the ground in the first place. Thanks Barack. And we can thank Obama ICE chief, John Morton, too. He’s too consumed with using ICE and his personal employment agency and travel agent (in his quest to get a showbiz legal job) to worry about immigration enforcement or the dangers aliens like Abunayyan pose to average American travelers who don’t travel in style like he does.
The man who repeatedly yelled “Allah is great” as he was removed yesterday from a plane that was forced to make an emergency landing due to his unruly behavior is a 19-year-old Saudi Arabian who was arrested Sunday night after he led Oregon police on a drunken car chase that saw him ram two cop cars and attempt to run over pedestrians, The Smoking Gun has learned. . . .
Abunayyan . . . also hit or attempted to hit other passengers and was “speaking or singing about Usama bin Laden and his hatred of women,” the indictment charges. Abunayyan, who reportedly has been in the U.S. visiting relatives, was charged with a felony count of interfering with flight crew members. . . .
Abunayyan, who is scheduled to appear later this afternoon before a federal magistrate, was arrested Sunday evening by cops after a wild car chase in Medford, an Oregon city 275 miles south of Portland.
Police reported that the intoxicated teenager led them on a 20-minute chase that ended after his Ford sedan got stuck on a dirt embankment. During the chase, Abunayyan was spotted driving in circles, attempting to run over pedestrians, and driving the wrong way on a street. He also rammed two patrol cars.
“It was like ‘Grand Theft Auto’,” a witness told a local newspaper.
Abunayyan was booked late Sunday into the Jackson County jail on a variety of charges, including driving under the influence of intoxicants, assault on a police officer, criminal mischief, hit and run, and reckless endangerment.
He was freed from custody Monday around 6 PM after posting $65,000 bond. Which allowed him, a day later, to board Flight 1118, albeit briefly.
Again, if Barack Obama allowed ICE agents to do their jobs and to properly train local law enforcement officials to help them do it, Abunayyan would still be behind bars, either in Oregon or an ICE detention center awaiting deportation.
If we were serious and enforced our nation’s immigration laws, Abunayyan would never have been on the Continental flight to Houston, on which he could have cost a whole plane full of passengers and crew their lives.
That he got on that plane shows that 10.5 years after 9/11, our national security is a joke. He got on that plane, but you and I will still be forced to take off our shoes and get felt up by TSA.
Only in America.
