Three people convicted of terror-related offenses after 9/11 were given U.S. citizenship later, outraging Rep. Steve King, the Republican chairman of the House subcommittee that deals with immigration. Its outrageous that you can have people under your very nose and adjudicate them through the process and convict them and then turn around and grant them citizenship, King told CNS News.
The unidentified trio were all granted U.S. citizenship under the Obama administration, two in 2009 and one in 2010, according to federal auditors.
They were caught up in an investigation involving an identified link to international terrorism, said the report from the Government Accountability Office. But they were charged with violating other statutes, including fraud, immigration, drugs, false statements, and general conspiracy charges.
Two were convicted of unlawful production of an identity document and the other of breaking sanctions by transferring funds out of the country. The offenses are referred to as Category II terror-related cases.
King is calling for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to conduct background checks for all applicants for citizenship. Nobody should be getting citizenship that has been adjudicated in this fashion. Its something that were going to have to take up with the immigration agency, he said.

Terrorists were given citizenship after the fact.
how can we get the attention for this that it deserves?
So now they can be tried for treason?
What's the problem? There's plenty of news outlets, television, radio, and the vast internet. Don't you know? It's easy to get anything out. There's no reason for anything to be kept undercover anymore. Why, you'd have to control the whole Net to stop the truth from getting out - what are you, some sort of tinfoil nut?
ima mean it should be all over the place.
When do the citizens realize that the ‘real’ terror threat is now controlling the WH and the Senate?
