3/4 of terrorism convicts in USA foreign born

3/4 of terrorism convicts in US foreign born report

More than 1,700 individuals have been removed from the US for national security concerns since September 11, 2001, a new report from the Department of Homeland Security notes.

The report, jointly released by the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice (DOJ), also indicated that law enforcement removed 1716 aliens with national security concerns from the United States from 2001 to 2016, and has identified 2554 people on the terrorist watch list who were traveling to the United States. Michael German, formerly an Federal Bureau of Investigation counterterrorism agent and now a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice's Liberty and National Security program, said the report's use of the term "international terrorism" exclusively refers to Muslim groups.

The director of the Center on National Security at the Fordham University School of Law, Karen Greenberg, said the percentage of US -born individuals indicted for terrorism is now 54 percent, which is far beyond the 27 percent conviction rate Trump administration touted in its report in a bid to obscure "the fact that the number of USA -born global terrorism defendants have doubled".

The report comes as the White House and Congress are engaged in a heated debate over the potential for an immigration overhaul.

Trump mandated the report in a March 6, 2017, executive order banning travel to the USA from six Muslim-majority nations.

According to the USA official, the Trump administration will update the report every 180 days.

The report excludes instances of domestic terrorism without an worldwide link as well as instances in which people were tried in state courts. Seventy-three percent were foreign-born. "And the information in this report is only the tip of the iceberg: we now have terrorism-related investigations against thousands of people in the United States, including hundreds of people who came here as refugees". Officials indicated that the foreign nationals had committed egregious, public safety-related offenses within the U.S.

Federal global terrorism trials have included Ahmed Abu Khattala, the Libyan militant convicted of orchestrating the deadly attack on the USA facility in Benghazi, and Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, a Kuwaiti cleric and son-in-law of Osama bin Laden convicted of his support for al Qaeda.

Of the 549 people convicted on such charges, 295 were US citizens and 254 were not.

Still, the joint report issued Tuesday finds that prosecutors lodged more than half of all terrorism charges-295 out of 549-against US citizens either by birth or naturalization.

The survey was conducted by the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security in response to a specific requirement in the Trump administration's travel-ban order issued in March.

Only Elfgeeh is listed as coming to the US based on "chain migration".

In fact, immigrants - both authorized and unauthorized - are less likely to commit crimes than the USA -born population. The report didn't provide data on the people's country of origin or immigration history. The survey found out that 254 convictions out of the total 549 global terrorism convictions that were connected to the terrorist attacks that took place in the fateful day of September 11, 2001, were not citizens of the United States.

The Islamic State terrorist organization possess a power structure that is more decentralized as compare to Al-Qaeda who was the perpetrators of the September 11 attacks in 2001.
