Three Michigan residents from Kenya were arrested for attempting to join ISIS. Fox 2 reports:
DETROIT (FOX 2) – The U.S. Attorney’s Office has charged three people from Lansing with supporting ISIS including one man they said was flying from Grand Rapids to join the organization.
According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Michigan, the three Lansing residents were charged after one of them checked into a flight that would take him from Grand Rapids to Somalia.
Members of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Muse Abdikadir Muse at the Gerald R. Ford airport in Grand Rapids on Monday. They later arrested Mohamud Abdikadir Muse, and Mohamed Salat Haji – all three men are naturalized U.S. citizens who were born in Kenya.
The attorney’s office says Muse Muse bought his ticket earlier this month and that Haji and Mohamud Muse helped him with the purchase and transportation to the airport.
The threat of radical Islamic terrorism is still a huge threat to America, and the brave work by America’s law enforcement ensured that they were punished for their egregious crimes.
