Four Defendants Arrested in Minneapolis; Two Arrested in San Diego

According to the criminal complaint and documents filed in court, the FBI has been conducting an investigation for the last 10 months into a group of individuals who have tried to join – and in some cases succeeded in joining – overseas designated foreign terrorist organizations. At least nine Minnesotans have now been charged as part of this conspiracy to provide material support to ISIL. The men are all alleged associates and friends of one another.

News that is getting all too common…..Surprise! They wanted to join ISIS!
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Six people were arrested Sunday in connection with a terrorism investigation in Minnesota, where authorities have been tracking youths who have traveled or tried to travel to Syria to fight with militants, including the Islamic State group, authorities said.
A spokesman for the Minnesota U.S. Attorney’s Office said the arrests were made in Minneapolis and San Diego but there is no threat to public safety. Spokesman Ben Petok did not give details about the charges. He said more information would be released Monday.

Who is responsible in Minnesota for colonizing the state with shariah-loving Somalis?
These Somalis didn’t just “find their way” to Minnesota, they were “resettled” there by federal refugee resettlement contractors.
For new readers, check out this post: US State Department and its resettlement contractors are responsible for the Somalis they delivered to over 60 towns in Minnesota (over 10,000 Somalis in the last ten years)! That is in addition to the approximately 2,000 ‘secondary migrants’ (refugees placed elsewhere) who head to Minnesota each year.
In recent research, we learned that five of the nine major US resettlement contractors are operating in “welcoming” Minnesota. Four are so-called ‘Christian charities.’
Here are the nine major federal resettlement contractors (increasingly working to resettle those ‘unaccompanied alien children’ as well). Those with offices in Minnesota are in red.
