Since the moment President Trump signed his executive order on the travel ban, progressives have been saying that Muslim immigrants are not a real threat to the U.S. However, reality speaks the truth, and what recently happened in NYC just proves how delusional liberals really are.
A couple of Muslims in New York plead guilty last week to allegations of conspiring to aid the Islamic State and planning to set off a pressure-cooker bomb in the city. According to CNN, Munther Omar Saleh, 21, of Queens, and Fareed Mumuni, 22, of Staten Island were “conspiring and attempting to provide material support” to the Islamic State and attacking federal officers.
Mumuni was also charged with “attempted murder of federal officers” relating to an incident in which he stabbed an FBI official as law enforcement officials carried out a search warrant at his home a couple of years ago.
“Today’s guilty pleas show just how close the threat of homegrown terrorism exists for New York City,” stated William F. Sweeney, Jr., assistant director-in-charge of the FBI’s New York field office. “From their respective homes in Queens and Staten Island, Saleh and Mumuni conspired to place a pressure cooker bomb in the New York metro area on behalf of ISIL.”
“Mumuni even attacked an FBI agent when a court-authorized search was being conducted by the Joint Terrorism Task Force at his home in Staten Island,” he further said. “Threats like this are exactly why protecting the United States from a terrorist attack remains the FBI’s No. 1 priority.”
Saleh and Mumuni were both apprehended in 2015 after law enforcement discovered their gruesome plans.
“During his arrest, Mumuni stabbed an FBI agent numerous times, but thankfully the agent’s body armor protected him from the defendant’s attack and the defendant was safely apprehended by law enforcement,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security Mary B. McCord on Friday.
The two wannabe terrorists reportedly planned to plant pressure-cooker bombs at various New York landmarks and tourist attractions. Pressure-cooker bombs were infamously used to bomb the Boston Marathon in 2013.
“Saleh and Mumuni engaged in plotting attacks against New York City in the name of ISIL,” New York Police Commissioner James P. O’Neill said. “They received instructions from senior ISIL leaders in Syria. They were committed to violence.”
So there you have it, folks, now you have empirical evidence as to why Trump’s controversial travel ban is actually needed for this country to stay safe! It’s even possible that, if, say, Hillary was elected, that by now this country may have experienced another terror attack.
