Jihadis Jailed: Five Extremist Muslims from New Mexico Compound Arrested by FBI
LifeZette ^ | Saturday, September 1, 2018 | By Michele Blood

The FBI arrested New Mexico Amalia compound residents on Friday on federal firearms and conspiracy charges, according to a statement by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of New Mexico.

The arrests came just two days after Judge Emilio Chavez dismissed child abuse charges against three of the five on a timing technicality.

Prosecutors had missed the deadline for an evidentiary hearing to establish probable cause under New Mexico’s “10-day rule,” as Fox News and other outlets reported.

Earlier this month, police raided the ramshackle dessert dwelling in search of 3-year-old Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, who had gone missing from Georgia.

They discovered 11 starving, severely neglected children along with the boy’s remains amid the squalor, as multiple outlets reported.

The children were reportedly being trained to conduct school shootings.

The adult defendants arrested Friday, all between the ages of 35 and 40, include Haitian national Jany Leveille — who was illegally present in the United States — Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, Hujrah Wahhaj, Subhanah Wahhaj, and Lucas Morton.

Leveille is charged with “being an alien unlawfully in possession of firearms and ammunition in the District of New Mexico from Nov. 2017 through Aug. 2018.”

The Wahhajs and Morton are charged with aiding and abetting Leveille’s offense and conspiring to commit the offence, per the DOJ statement.

The firearms charges arose from a search warrant executed August 3, when the Taos County Sheriff’s Office found at least 11 firearms and a large quantity of ammunition. Leveille stands accused of transporting the firearms in her car across state lines.

If convicted, Leveille faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison followed by deportation.

The remaining four also face a maximum of 10 years in prison if convicted on aiding and abetting.

All five face a statutory penalty of five years if convicted on the conspiracy charge, the statement explained.

The group was reportedly arrested in Taos, New Mexico, on Friday afternoon without incident.

They are slated to appear in federal court on Tuesday, September 4, in Albuquerque.

What about child abuse, and murder and teaching children to become terrorists? Any way I am just glad some had the guts to prosecute these vile people for something. Now someone should get rid of that insane judge.

No, get rid of the delinquent, and likely corrupt, prosecutor.

The judge is following the law, which we stand for here.

It’s the FBI.
All the muzzies have to do is claim that they are progressives.
Nothing will happen.
Check back in a year and see.
Oh, by the way, heard any news from our vaunted FBI about that Las Vegas shooting?
FBI, initials for a big nothingburger. (Unless they are “investigating” conservatives.)

Only gettingrid of Trump is important to the FBI now. Don’t get confident about any serious charges on the conspirators.

Don’t be misled. This is witness protection. Witness against the feds. The FIBS don’t want anyone getting comments or statements from them which implicate federal coordination of their schemes.

This 'lady' has a bunch to account for:

Seems like I read somewhere it's illegal to have a mug shot made while wearing a head scarf.

Well that would put the FBI about 1 for 31, on the competence scale.

I'm sorry but I don't think for a second the FBI is acting in good faith. They are covering their tracks.

What did the FBI know about these terrorists and when did they know it?

IMO, the FBI only made an arrest to save face. This story is not dying so they had to do something. My guess is not only did the FBI previously know about these individuals but under Obama they were cultivating them. The Obama DOJ and FBI were given orders to cultivate incidents that would allow for passage of broad sweeping gun control.

I don't think the FBI is doing anything in the interest of the American people. How would we know if they did? The agency seems to be accountable to no one and they operate in total secrecy. Not even congressional oversight can shed light on their actions.

Bottom line: Institutions like the FBI and FISA courts are not mentioned in the constitution and for good reason. We can't afford to have "secret" government. We've seen the results and it's time to correct the course. We need to eliminate the Existence of FISA and the FBI.

Not when some silly technicality is all that’s keeping a bunch of murdering terrorists off the streets - no. Then the law is being abused in the name of evil.

Low IQ jihadis creating more low IQ jihadis. The invaders are a Democrat party protected species. Foolish democrats believe the votes will somehow not be a source of war on America and by the time the reality appears the democrats who foisted this anti America insanity upon we the people will be with McCain in hell.

MAYBE this is why the judge dismissed the STATE charges, so The FEDS could take over, federal crimes seem to carry much stiffer sentences!!!!

yep. I have to agree. The FISA court would work if you could guarantee the motives of the participants. Sadly the same human nature that results in all human failures makes anything of this nature a destined to fail endeavor

Yes, that makes more sense. Thanks! For a moment, I forgot the agenda of the Feebees. All I can say is, over my dead body.

Rather than just zeroing in on the judge, how about doing that also for the FBI/prosecutor that let the 10 days slip by?
