Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 22, a former Texas Tech University chemical engineering student, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, and faces up to life in prison if convicted. Attorneys plan to use an insanity defense, court records show.
Federal agents secretly searched Aldawsari's apartment in Lubbock, Texas, twice in the days leading up to his arrest in February last year.

Item one in my immigration reform position is protecting the borders to include visa reform. Prospective visa holders must be vetted, tracked while in the country and held to the terms of the visa. This guy wouldn’t has made it. We have to nail these guys either by keeping them out or if the get in, nail them when they can’t cut the mustard at their school. Now a visa is a free pass. My wife was thoroughly vetted before she came here as a nurse and she had to report her address and employment here.
