On Thursday, news broke that terror-related arrests were made in Sacramento, California, and Houston, Texas. The individuals are said to have connections to ISIS and both are refugees.
Nevertheless, authorities say there is no immediate danger to the public.
The Chron reported:
In a statement late Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice said Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, a Palestinian born in Iraq, has been charged with attempting to “provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization.”
The indictment, unsealed Thursday, also alleges that Al Hardan, an Iraqi refugee who lives in Houston and was granted permanent resident status in 2011, unlawfully attempted to become a U.S. citizen and lied to authorities about his connections to a “terrorist organization.”
