Did The Judges Lie: New Report Finds 72 Terrorists Came From Countries Covered By Trump Ban

Tyler Durden's picture

The federal judge who halted President Donald Trump's travel ban was wrong in stating that no one from the seven countries targeted in Trump's order has been arrested for extremism in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks. In fact, as a new report finds, 72 individuals from the seven 'mostly Muslim countries' covered by President Trump's "extreme vetting" executive order have been convicted of terrorism since 9/11.

As AP first reported, during a hearing in Seattle last week, Judge Robartasked a Justice Department lawyer how many arrests of foreign nationals from the countries have occurred since 9/11. When the lawyer said she didn't know, Robart answered his own question: 

"Let me tell, you, the answer to that is none, as best I can tell. You're here arguing on behalf of someone that says we have to protect the United States from these individuals coming from these countries and there's no support for that."

And now, having denied President Trump's appeal, claiming his policy "would cause irreparable injury," would cause irreparable injury, it seems the entire premise of the seven "mostly muslim" nations' mostly-peaceful, non-terrorist ways are in doubt as The Center for Immigration Studies shows that...

A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump's vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks.


In June 2016 the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, released a report on individuals convicted in terror cases since 9/11. Using open sources (because the Obama administration refused to provide government records), the report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in terror cases since 9/11 were foreign-born. The report is no longer available on the Senate website, but a summary published by Fox News is available here.


The Center has obtained a copy of the information compiled by the subcommittee. The information compiled includes names of offenders, dates of conviction, terror group affiliation, federal criminal charges, sentence imposed, state of residence, and immigration history.


The Center has extracted information on 72 individuals named in the Senate report whose country of origin is one of the seven terror-associated countries included in the vetting executive order: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The Senate researchers were not able to obtain complete information on each convicted terrorist, so it is possible that more of the convicted terrorists are from these countries.


The United States has admitted terrorists from all of the seven dangerous countries:

  • Somalia: 20
  • Yemen: 19
  • Iraq: 19
  • Syria: 7
  • Iran: 4
  • Libya: 2
  • Sudan: 1
  • Total: 72


According to the report, at least 17 individuals entered as refugees from these terror-prone countries. Three came in on student visas and one arrived on a diplomatic visa.


At least 25 of these immigrants eventually became citizens. Ten were lawful permanent residents, and four were illegal aliens.


These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president's order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.

Finally, we reminder readers that while Charles Kurzman, a sociology professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, says his research shows no Americans have been killed in the U.S. at the hands of people from the seven countries - Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen - since Sept. 11, it's not quite right to say no one from those nations has been arrested or accused in an extremist-related plot while living in the U.S.

23 percent of Muslim Americans involved with extremist plots since Sept. 11 had family backgrounds from the seven countries.

So Judge claims ZERO but in fact the number is 72... Those darn 'alternative facts' are such trouble... or is it racist, sexist, mysoginist, and bogoted when the liberal judiciary is fact-checked?

Three judges from the 9th Circuit Court do NOT have jurisdiction to pass judgement over a Presidential EO... Period, the end... If Trump didn't have traitors on his inside team this would never have happened... Time for Preibus to go...

"23 percent of Muslim Americans involved with extremist plots since Sept. 11 had family backgrounds from the seven countries."... I want to know what is the background of the other 77%??? And how did they find out that those people are terrorists??? Just because of their country of origin.. not convincing!

Neither are you. Here's a bowl. It's has 200 M&M's and 46 are poisoned. Care to take a bite? ... Yeah, that's what I thought. Afraid of those 46 M&M's? The majority is good though! You just don't know which ones. Yet still you don't try.

and how much did all this cost? homeland security, just another bloated gov.org terd. and what about liberty? huh, ask that guy hanging out in russia. leads directly to the neocon MIC and MENA/izzy crapola...

Here's a bowl. It's has 200 M&M's and 46 are poisoned by one chemical, 154 are poisened by another.

Afraid of those 46 M&M's? You should be, since that is what we're telling you. The other 154 were poisened by "strategically important" people and you shouldn't think about them or any relevant statistics.

The majority is good though, since they have Saudi and Quatari chemicals! You just don't know which ones.

Some *-tards have suggested not dealing with people who actually put poisen in M&Ms, but they're anti-business and anti-Freedom.

lucitanian's picture

Oh yes they do. These "terrorists" for the most part came in on visas, after going through stringent checks. Why?
I'll tell you why. ISIS and Al Qaeda are funded by the CIA and managed by through Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States (a form of money laundering). These terrorist are the mercenary pawns that worked for the covert machine and got caught, and are subsequently issued visas to escape the consequences. Now they are being used again, recycled if you like, to justify another meme, another purpose.

The Arab world did not invent terrorism or learn how to "market" it as  raison d'etre for any and all draconian policies. Israel and the Zionists can take credit for that, and somehow the idea migrated to the US with your duel nationality neocons and neoliberals, in order to justify yet another endless "war on terror".

I don't know whether you know this but 9/11 was an inside job, and the reasons for aggression against Iraq, the first time, then Somalia, then Iraq again, then Libya, and now Syria, were based on fabrications and lies. Just as the sanctions and the next round against Iran are. The same goes for Ukraine and Russia.

Yes there are Muslim fanatics, there are also Christian and Jewish fanatics, but your CIA and Mossad along with some greedy and tyrannical billionaires who want to stay in power in Saudi Arabia and their friends on Wall Street etc. have orchestrated your attitudes through propaganda, as well as orchestrating a superficially convincing show of "global terrorism".

And you should be afraid, yes very afraid, but its not the pawns that you should fear, but the machinations behind their organization. Be afraid of the Zionists in your country's administration, the Goldman Sachs agents and their tentacles into the Word Bank, IMF, FED and most government Central Banks around the world. Check what's happening to those trillions of dollars spent on security and defense orchestrated by the bought and paid for Senate or HoR. As they say "follow the money" you'll find who the global terrorists really are.     

I know it's easier to blame every Arab (1/3 of the worlds pop.) or every Jew (0.8 % of the global pop.), or maybe the Chinese (abt. 1/4 of the world pop.) and that is exactly what the tools of propaganda have done for you, but remember they; that little group of sociopaths who control Wall Street, your FED, your TV, your movies, your news papers, and yes they control more than half the alternative media too, as well as the NGOs, etc., with their finance, they have taken you for a jolly old ride, and keep you pointed in the wrong direction (mostly against each other). You've had enough "false frag" attacks, now you get "Fake News", fake news on fake news. But, as Carl Rove is reported to have said:

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” (Ron Suskind, NYTimes Magazine, Oct. 17, 2004). 

Please, please, take the time to think critically and follow the evidence not your prejudice or reinforced preconceived opinions. Ask yourselves "why" and "how". If you don't and if you allow yourself to be led down these paths and warrens , it is your own undoing you must face when you get lost. Reality will soon enough catch up with you.

Fascinating. Tragic though the incidents may be, the beauty of this shit is that it is exposing the falsity of "Political Correctness" and forcing otherwise complacent officials to show the true depth of their incompetence.  Every politician and public official like Justin Trudeau who condones and even encourages this Soros-supported nation-breaking shit needs to be removed from office.

I've studied Islam fairly carefully over the last few weeks, and like it or not, Islam is one of the main poisons that need to be weeded out of civil western society.  It's a violent, intolerant, tyrannical, hateful thing, a kind of sociopolitical cancer that escalates and spreads at every opportunity.  This is not spreading hate; it's a practical observation. Just look at the THOUSANDS of incidents being faced in Sweden and the Netherlands right now.  My family over there is absolutely furious, and IT'S BEING ACTIVELY SQUELCHED IN CONTROLLED MEDIA.

The point needs to be made forcibly that there is no place for Islamist human garbage in self-respecting western countries.  Every last one of these people needs to be removed.  Take your political-system-posing-as-a-religion and shove it up your ass -- and George Soros, from what I gather, your turn is coming. 


By the way, WTH is wrong with ZH lately?  Page Load takes forever, and Page Refresh gets you kicked out!  If everybody has to reload constantly, the added server load must be horrendous...?

"I've studied Islam fairly carefully over the last few weeks"

Wow, now that must make you an expert. 14 centuries of history and theological study, and you've got it down in a couple of weeks.

I don't know whether you know this but, when there are waves of refugees pouring out of some place like the ME or N. Africa, its not necessarily all the best people who flee for the best reasons, a lot of criminals and the dross of society manage to slip into the crowd. I think you had the same problem in the US after the potato famine in Ireland, or when the Italian economy tanked in the 1870's and again in the beginning of the 20thC.

The mostly protestant USn's said about the same thing about the Catholics at the time. I'm sure they also said something like:

"This is not spreading hate; it's a practical observation."

Ask yourself; What, how, why these waves of migrants were created. Once you've answered that you might find another religion to blame for the last part "who". But maybe it's not the religion at all but a few people who use it and ignorance and suffering of masses as a tool to manipulate the world to their greedy ends.

Re-read my comment and you see that I'm well aware of the source. That doesn't invalidate my stance against the imported product. This dynamic is much darker and older and potentially more bloody than mere interdenominational tension, although God knows Muslims are a similarly fractious bunch, and some of the moderates are very good critical thinkers. As usual, both sides are being played. That doesn't change the fact that the two manipulated worldviews are irreconcilable.

they deserve some chastisement but treason seems a bit high a bar.

but it's not for the perps of 9-11, one of whom most certainly was a federal judge: alvin k hellerstein.  he denied every single one of the 9-11 families its day in court, and that order was upheld to the supreme court.  those judges that voted with him are in fact likely traitors and accessories after the fact to mass murder.  it's good to know what kind of people rule us.

oh, and alvin?  his son, an israeli lawyer, at the time worked for the same law firm that was defending the israeli firm that provided passenger screening security for the airports from which the alleged mostly saudi "terrorists" boarded and was a likely defendant in the cases the 9-11 families were prevented from bringing.

as they say, what the fuck??!!

President Bashar al-Assad on "US Travel Ban" - 9 February 2017

Yahoo News chief investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff traveled to Syria for an exclusive sitdown with President Bashar Assad, his first interview since the inauguration of Donald Trump. During the 35-minute interview, Assad tells Isikoff that some of the 4.8 million refugees from Syria’s civil war are “definitely” aligned with terrorists, adding “you don't need significant number to commit atrocities.” Speaking at a presidential office in Damascus, Assad also says President Trump’s controversial executive order barring refugees from entering the United States is “an American issue.”

Yes, if you find the complete list of "terrorists", you will get more than those 7 countries of origin. Why not ban them all???
Please note, however, those dancing Israelis who traveled to document 9/11 should never be considered terrorists; that would be antisemitic.

jeff montanye's picture

yes and this list of worthies also:  http://www.whodidit.org/cocon.html

everywhere you touch 9-11 you find people whose first allegiance is to israel not the u.s. and they are keeping everyone from really investigating this crime unique in so many ways.

why is it that israeli firsters, many of them jewish, are so concerned that a plot by arab terrorists not be checked out fully?

that's the tell.  forget the melting point of steel and the pancaking floors horseshit.  fuck popular mechanics and nist.

This is all well and good, but I still think this is focusing on the wrong aspect. The point in all this is that we are under no obligtion, moral or legal, to allow any person or persons from anywhere into our country if we don't want them here. Long established law says the president can do this at his discretion alone, so all this is moot. If they don't like it, present a bill to congress and try to push it through. Liberal lawyers wearing robes aren't suppsoed to be able to preempt the laws in this manner. Which brings up another point, most of what Trump is doing is simply enforcing existing law. The pathetic thing is that EOs are even needed for this to happen. We just had an election, trump won. He won because the people in most of the country do not want to bring these people in, from anywhere. The 'they may be terrorists' is only a part of it. We want to keep our country intact, and we don't want to bring in more foreigners that we must support for their entire lives. Even if you can conclusively prove, through this 'extreme vetting' nonsense that they are no threat, we still have 10's of millions of people who live on handouts, and we don't need to keep bringing more in.
