The federal criminal complaint filed yesterday against Dallas-area Muslim Jordanian (translation: Palestinian) terror plotter, Hosam Maher Husein Smadi, is Exhibit A in failed immigration enforcement on the part of two Homeland Security agencies, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and CIS (Citizenship and Immigration Services). Smadi is the 19-year-old who plotted to kill Christians and Jews and tried to blow up Dallas’ Fountain Place skyscraper. And both agencies apparently failed to stop this guy from entering and remaining here.
(BTW, check out girlie-man Smadi’s mug shot. I warned you that Muslims in America were a big portion of the “Guybrow” contingent.)
GuyBrow Islamic Terrorist Hosam Smadi
When I read the criminal complaint (read it here), yesterday, I noted that Smadi has an “A number” or Alien Registration Number, a number assigned to all known aliens who enter the U.S. either when they enter the country legally or when they are caught by ICE after being here illegally. That number is linked to fingerprints and is meant to better track the aliens in our midst (though we really aren’t tracking them much, which is the problem). Smadi’s A Number, in case you were wondering, is A097683198.
Yet Smadi had two instances that raise flags. A new report, out today, reveals these disturbing details about illegal alien Smadi, which were ignored until after he was snagged:
Both Hosam and Hussein were in the U.S. on student visas they received in 2007, their father said.
Official Jordanian state records show that Hosam Smadi left Jordan for the U.S. in 2007 without giving any reason for his departure, Jordan’s Minister of State Nabil al-Sharif said.
Al-Sharif added that Hosam Smadi was arrested and charged in 2004 with theft and homelessness at the age of 14, but could not provide further details.
However, a judiciary official said Smadi was sentenced to 3 months in jail for a minor misdemeanor. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
Why was Smadi, with a Jordanian criminal record, granted a student visa? Didn’t anyone at CIS check his criminal background with Jordanian authorities? Of course not because, as I’ve repeatedly noted on this site, CIS adjudicators are pressured and rewarded to go through applications for immigration benefits, like visas, very quickly. They spend less than six minutes per application on average. They didn’t take the time the Dallas Morning News did to check with Jordanian authorities.
Where was Smadi going to college at age 17 that he received a student visa? Did anyone at ICE check to see if he attended college here or whether he was still here if he wasn’t in school, in violation of that visa (which was apparently the case)? Of course not, because as I’ve also repeatedly noted on this site, ICE agents are pressured by ICE “leadership” (as as the case under “The ICE Princess,” Julie L. Myers) to close visa violator cases as quickly as possible, rather than find the alien and his/her whereabouts and whether or not they remain in the country. Neither the criminal complaint nor any reports identify his attendance at any U.S. college or university. (He missed out, because he’d find many allies there.)
Both of these factors clearly contributed to the continued illegal presence of alien Hosam Smadi on U.S. soil. We’re lucky the FBI caught him. But there are plenty like him they won’t catch.
Until it’s too late.
Oh, and by the way, if that isn’t bad enough, Smadi’s brother, Hussein, is here, too. He was arrested in California in connection with this case. Lucky us. How many tens or hundreds of thousands more in our midst who haven’t been arrested?
