Report: 72 Convicted of Terrorism from Countries Banned by Trump

(Washington Examiner) Since 9/11, 72 individuals from the seven mostly Muslim countries covered by President Trump‘s “extreme vetting” executive order have been convicted of terrorism, bolstering the administration’s immigration ban.

According to a report out Saturday, at least 17 claimed to be refugees from those nations, three came in as “students,” and 25 eventually became U.S. citizens.

The Center for Immigration Studies calculated the numbers of convicted terrorists from the Trump Seven:

— Somalia: 20

— Yemen: 19

— Iraq: 19

— Syria: 7

— Iran: 4

— Libya: 2

The Center’s director of policy studies, Jessica M. Vaughan, based her blockbuster report on a 2016 report from the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, that report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in terror cases since 9/11 were foreign-born.

She received further information on many in the report to conclude that 72 of those convicted of terrorism come from the seven nations target by Trump.

    Illegal Mexicans to jam courts fighting deportation. Cool, have lots of ICE and BP there to arrest them,and haul them off.

    • Mary Tennant-Reeves

      I do not understand why are the illegals jamming our courts? They in my option do not have any rights! Our court system is for Americans and people from other countries who committed crimes in America. If we were in another country and did not have rights to be there they would ship us home on our $$ and if we contested would be shot.

      • billie

        Mary, you are absolutely correct. However in the the last 8 years our “leadership ?”opened the gates and let this country be over run with illegals.

        • charley williams

          B.S. The Fifth and Fourteenth Amendment Give Due Process to EVERYONE, even those not born here ! The only thing stated twice, kinda important eh ?

          What other parts of the Constitution do you wanna throw out

          • raffaelecafagna

            You can`t go to another country without Permission ; It is the Law here .
            Also an international Law and a Law very well Enforced in Mexico .
            Just go to Mexico without permission and see what they do to you ; you will be in prison chained to a metal ring in the floor , with rats and cockroaches as friends .

          • charley williams

            What Country do you live in Mexico ? I was talking about where I live ! Mexican or any other Country’s Laws is NOT RELEVANT ! After they are here they have the Right of Due Process !

            Constitution Amendments 5 and 14 !

          • raffaelecafagna

            You don`t get it and you will never get it or understand . Crossing the border without permission is a Crime and a criminal . Therefore the criminal will go to prison and face a judge . That is the Law . Take some illegals into your house , you love them so much .
            See if you have any Rights , just go to Mexico by crossing the fence ; see what they do to you . Get off of my back ; Come here the Legal way .

          • charley williams

            So you ADMIT they have a Right to Due Process, that is all I said ! And I ” get it ” just fine !

          • raffaelecafagna

            They are Criminals therefore they have to appear in front of a judge ; the problem was that the judge would release them to ICE and back into the streets . Now it is a different story ; they are deported .

          • charley williams
          • Cindy Ervin

            I have to agree with you and I’ll go a step further. The Mexican president should be sued for encouraging his people to come over here illegally. We send them millions (or billions)in aid a year and he does nothing to try to keep them there. Trump will use that money to build the wall. The Mexican president should’very done that.

          • raffaelecafagna

            Thank you my friend . Benefits to illegals # 235 Billion a year . Enforcing E-Verify and stopping all that$$$$$ will force illegals to self deport .

          • revfleming

            If you don’t like the way the Mexican President is handling his country, then you and your friend should STOP TAKING VACATIONS there. Otherwise you’re just a big bag of WIND.

          • Cindy Ervin

            I don’t know what planet you’re on, but, I’ve never vacationed in Mexico, nor do I have any desire to do so.

        • revfleming

          billie, WHY NOT AT LEAST TELL THE TRUTH because you’re just outright LYING as 12 MILLIONS illegal immigrants didn’t come to America in the last EIGHT YEARS. For example the woman just deported have been living in America 35 YEARS. You just wanted to tell a lie to blame former President Obama. SHAME ON YOU for not being able to tell the REAL TRUTH, not your made-up truth.

      • charley williams

        Everyone in this Country has a RIGHT to DUE PROCESS, without that, how do you even know they are illegals ! What are you going to just start throwing out everyone that doesn’t look like you ? Well I was born in Michigan in 59 and you don’t look like me, maybe we should start with you !

        • raffaelecafagna

          since you like the illegals so much why don`t you take a few into your house .?????? Another Law : Come here the Legal way Not the Obama way =jump the fence come here and I will give you everything Free , all paid by stupid taxpayers .

          • charley williams

            Lol, WAY, Way more illegals came before Obama than during his 8 years !

          • raffaelecafagna

            O did it for 8 years , gave amnesty to Millions , gave Benefits $ 235 Billion a year paid by stupid taxpayers .

          • charley williams

            As did Reagan and Bush !


    Illegals that enter our country and we find they are connected with a criminal act, send their butts back from where they came from. We can always drop them off from the air in an aircraft if country won’t take them back.

    • stoney

      In a bodybag

  • chris VN

    A few more countries need to be added to that list as well, especially Pakistan.

    • Jack Leonard

      And Saudi Arabia.

      • The Redhawk

        and Mexico..they Top the list for Crimes against Innocent Americans….. Steinle anyone?

      • needful

        you have that right, the saudi’s should be top of the list!!!!

    • edlorens

      Afganistan too…or Saudi. But Mr. Trump is chosing that 7, because those countries were on Obama similar list that went nowhere,For some reason those 7 countries got the worst future prognosis

  • Joy

    Why are we so nice? Why do we have to put everything in the news? Don’t we have CIA operatives who can cleanly handle this problem? Be adults and protect your citizens.

    The problem is people like Ryan who say it is his job to protect the refugees. There is a new sheriff in town and that is no longer your job.

    • Mere Marlo

      That is how President Trump feels. The news media are so arrogant they rush to reveal everything we intend to do before the action is in play thereby alerting the enemy every time. Hope President Trump sheds himself of liberal BHO traitors and keeps the press in the dark until after the fact. America does not need to publicize her intentions to our enemies. We The People need to trust our Commander in Chief to do what is best for us, and I think we finally have someone in office who can be trusted. As for Ryan, he needs to shed his coat of many colors and stay on the side of the American People, not illegals (until such time as they become LEGAL).

      • charley williams

        You better read the Constitution ( Because obviously you like Trump never have ! ) note the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments ! It’s called Due Process !

        • raffaelecafagna

          and you like illegals and refugees . Please read ; The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House and Congress .

          Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and to the Republic.

          All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. Now the political correct crowd would say that Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion. Whether it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited..Enforce the law!!

          • charley williams

            Not necessarily, but MM was talking about People already here ! Different than those that need Vetting oversea’s, Thus the need of Due Process ! Read the 2 Amendments 5,14 ?

            BTW the 2nd worse terrorist attack in U.S. history was by someone who Called himself a Christian, more so Called Christians than any other Organization have done Terrorist acts on U.S. Soil ! And I’m sorry but the Old Testament does promote Violence, esp. to those that missed the Primary GRACE of the New Testament !

          • Lisa

            Show me where McVeigh yelled out praise God as he blew up the federal building in Oklahoma. You can’t, because he didn’t. He was NOT a Christian! Liar.

          • charley williams
          • Lisa

            Useless article. As I said, he did not yell praise god, and he did not do what he did in the name of religion. You need to read more on why he was disillusioned with the government. He was a Ranger wanna be, but failed twice. That was his life goal. Everything else is smoke and mirrors. Made up cr-p to justify his own faults.

          • charley williams

            Go ahead and ignore the Truth !

            BTW you would surely find that most Ranger’s are men of Faith !

          • Lisa

            As I said, he was NOT a Ranger. He failed twice. How exactly do you know most Ranger’s are men of faith? I doubt you even know any Rangers. Secondly, McVeigh never said he blew up that building in the name of religion. You are ignoring the truth.He did it because he was a sore loser, that didn’t get what he wanted. Just like you.

          • charley williams

            OK, nut you will find nearly all that tryout for Ranger School are Men of Faith !

            Like me how, because we both Called ourselves Christian ? Christian.

            Read Red Turner diary’s !

          • Lisa

            More name calling and babble. He did nothing in the name of Jesus.

          • charley williams

            What name calling, I misspelled But .
            Reread the first post, I said someone called himself a Christian. Your yelling out point is silly, not all Muslim Terrorist call out either !
            Read some White Supremist Literature, like The Turner Diary’s where he got his Bomb idea’s, they all use Christian theology !

            Just admit it we have Radicals that Call themselves Christian !

            BTW I’m a Christian myself, that asked the Lord in my life in 1965 !

      • Joy

        Absolutely, just as Obama said, I have the authority because there was a fair election. I want Trump to look at this from an absolute liberal viewpoint, “how can I make the law work for my agenda to save the USA”. Remember, THEY declared war, so give them war.

      • JINH

        I agree with Joy and you. Mainstream media is selective in what they want to “report”. They air what they want you to hear but do not report real news, real threats. In fact, in 2015 the Syrian president told Obummer there are terrorists amongst the refugees slithering into Europe. Ozero was told many, many times of terroristic threats but media opted to not air these. They’re defending themselves now because President Trump calls them out on not reporting these threats, but too little too late. They kept real threats from the public as to shove Odingdong down our throats more. The media is not holier than thou. Because of their deceit, leftist, evil, slanderous ways they have lost ratings. I’d say boycott! I have boycotted all “news” channels, including award shows. All except FOX. And to President Trump: distance yourself from the media. You have been elected our President. We trust you make all decision for the good of our country. God Bless you and America!

  • Gerald Mitchell

    These liberal non Trump supporters can now believe what Trump is doing is to keep us safe but they are such dumb idiots that they still want these Muslims to come here to destroy our country. HILLARY AND BERNIE SUPPORTERS.

    • Ray

      So they can have more Democraps votes in an election. Unbelievable

    • Timothy

      There were more terrorist convictions from US citizens, than the 7 banned countries. Almost 3 times as many, read the artivle do the math! GOD BLESS AMERICA

      • john blue

        Yes (Tim) but it all came from one doctrine. One group of followers. If you teach murder, rape, beheading and or uphold them that do then you don’t belong in the USA.

  • Len

    Become a American or get out and do it the right way if you want to stay where
    was your family helping you to become citizen you all knew this was going to happen

  • Donald Lindsey

    72 terrorist that Obama allowed to roam free on the streets of America.

    Now shut down and arrest those in the 36 errorist training camps inside our boarders

    • Timothy

      200 terrorist left free to roam that were born in the U.S. 72 terrorist from the banned countries come out to 4.5 per year since 9/11.Quick run and hide, scaredy cat! GOD BLESS AMERICA

      • Donald Lindsey

        Over 200 by ten times that number read terrorist training camp in the U.S.

  • Flyby

    Whaat? I guess obama’s team actually got it right about “those respectable countries” being terrorist training grounds. Who’d have thought.

  • Richard Daugherty

    How about no more immigrants for now. We are 20 trillion in debt. We need money for infrastructure and healthcare and many other things.maybe later when we are on our feet again we can deal with immigrants. For the time being all must go.Let us begin to use some common sense. Many judges and Congressmen are taking pay days from George Soros. Soros wants to destroy America. Enough!! America First.

    • True Beliver

      I agree with you fully however, the universities would have to close because they depend on the foreigners for their $$$. They should be shut down anyway because all they are teaching anymore is tyranny, how to protest, how to indoctrinate our children into communism/socialism/ ideals and charge a horrendous fee to do it may I add. Lets declare an immigrant holiday. No more green cards issued, no more visas except for vacations so they can spend their money here, no more permanent residence permits like Obama and Hil-liar-=ly gave to Soros. Soros also should be deported to one of the countries that wants him for war crimes. It is wonderful that he and Obama never got to finish their agenda because Hillary didn’t get elected.

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    Democrats are aiding and abetting the enemies of the United States. Those who block the illegal alien, and Muslim refugees ban of President Trump must be impeached, removed, or charged. They must be put to jail.

    • Timothy

      Slightly ridiculous, these judges are abiding the law! GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • Matt Bangert

    I don’t fear the refugees as much as I do their children. Refugees are mostly very nice actually. Look at the Boston bombers and at least half of the other attacks. Of course that is Mohammed’s plan for conquering peaceful Christian countries. It’s been working very good for 1400 years.

  • Moonfire

    I guess the judges didn’t do their homework before deciding that the President doesn’t know what he is doing to protect this country from terrorists. No doubt the President has been advised by secret intelligence as to terrorist threats and information that isn’t made public. For judges to question his authority is beyond crazy and detrimental to our safety.
    This political game these liberals are playing to fight Trump is stupid, immature and needs to stop! To continue with the liberals agenda is weakening our country (as in Syria) and makes us extremely vulnerable to attacks.
    It’s ironic and almost laughable that the illegals think they have a right to block our courts to object to deportations. This BS about breaking up families is a Con when they knew from the first day they came here illegally there was chance of deportation. The reason they had anchor babies was their intent to anchor themselves here and get welfare free for their babies. To now say it’s breaking up families is part of their original ploy to remain here illegally. Are liberals really that stupid to not see that?

    • Timothy

      Read the article! Do the math almost 3 times the terrorist were from the U.S..GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • omikehawk

    The moonbeams will never believe it! It doesn’t fit their agenda!

  • The Redhawk

    Hey SCHMUCKIE , HUMPING False SQUAW, So called “JUDGES” of the 9th Circuit o Idiots , CNN, BS NBC and PRESSTITUTES of the MSM plus PELOSI .and all Snowflakes with Exploded Heads ….>>>.. READ THIS??

    • Timothy

      Them is some good drugs dude! Slow it down some! GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • Patty

    we also need vetting for France & Germany, since their country has been taken over by terrorist.

  • Patty

    food for thought, all those who want to enter America has to have a chip implanted, at their expense, so they can be tracked.This would be ontop of our vetting process.Once in the U.S.they would have to report to some form of law enforcement agency.I wonder how many would want to come to the U.S.A.?

  • Timothy

    72÷16=4.50 person per year 7 countries:308÷16=19.2 from other countries:200÷16=12.5 from united states. Seems we should be restricting people from some other countries beside those 7.
    Read the article! We had almost 3 times the terrorist born and raised in the U.S as the 7 banned countries. GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • Louie Rey

    And the argument from the Left is??? Yes, let’s open the doors to any and all from these countries and let’s have a lottery to see who comes closest to the final body count. Wouldn’t that be a fun and educational endeavor for all? NOT! I’d tell the Left to wake up but you can’t wake up from a mental disorder, a psychosis that renders any logical (read: American national interest) thought moot and unsubstantiated. Pathetic.
