Chalk up 6 more Somali residents of Minneapolis busted trying to join terror groups overseas. In this case, the six were arrested in San Diego and Minneapolis in the process of joining ISIS.
Every time this happens, I am reminded of what CAIR's Southern California director, Hussam Ayloush, said recently at the Islamic Center of Orange County. Quoting US government statistics, he said only some 20 American Muslims had been known to join ISIS.
In the case of the Somali community of Minneapolis, I repeat that this is a result of our government bringing in some 80,000 refugees from Somalia in the 1990s. The largest resettlement community was Minneapolis. The US Attorney in Minnesota, Andrew Luger, only got it part right when he said that we have a problem. he referred to it as a Minnesota problem, not a Somali or immigration problem. It is all three. He also said that Minneapolis was a center of terrorist recruiting. He got that right.
