Saudi Student Hit with Illegal Firearms Charges in New Mexico Had ‘List of People He Planned to Kill’

America supports the Saudis but the relationship does not seem reciprocal.

By Shane Trejo

A Saudi college student who was set to graduate from the University of New Mexico (UNM) was charged with possessing an illegal firearm, and law enforcement found a “list of people he planned to kill” that was allegedly made by the foreigner.

Hassan Alqahtani, a 27-year-old mechanical engineering student, reportedly had a kill list that included UNM professors. He is being charged with being a non-immigrant student visa holder in possession of a firearm in federal court, and additional charges may be levied because of the kill list.

According to an FBI affidavit, Alqahtani was in possession of a .380-caliber Cobra handgun that they found while searching his home last week. He is set to have his preliminary hearing today at the U.S. District Court in Albuquerque.

Alqahtani was supposed to receive his bachelor degree from UNM on Saturday, but instead spent the weekend behind bars. His family was set to take him to Disneyworld to celebrate, but his plans were upended due to the charges. Now he may be looking at years in prison.

The authorities believe that Alqahtani wanted to obtain more guns. The individual who tipped the FBI off to his illegal weapon also told them that he had a “list of people who he wants to kill before he leaves the U.S.” This suggests that he may have been recruiting others into his plot, and the FBI believes his girlfriend, Sierra Shafer, may be an accomplice.

“Shafer is possibly conspiring with Alqahtani to conceal his possession of the firearm,” an FBI agent wrote in the affidavit. “Shafer made additional statements that the two kept it out in the open in the bedroom and also used the firearm for protection when they traveled in Alqahtani’s vehicle.”

This comes just one week after Saudi National Mohammed Saeed Alshamrania opened fire at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, FL, murdering three people and wounding seven others:

The murderer responsible for gunning down 3 people and wounding seven others at Naval Air Station Pensacola was identified as Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani.

He is a Saudi national and a member of the Saudi Arabian military who was residing in the U.S. for aviation training.

The shooting is currently being investigated as a possible terror attack.

The assailant fired upon a classroom building where he killed at least three and wounded seven other people.

Two deputies responded to the murderer and took out the shooter, while sustaining gunshot wounds, according to a report from David Morgan, the Escambia County Sheriff. One of the officers was shot in the knee and the other in the shoulder. They are both expected to recover.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office held a press conference once the dust cleared from the shooting.

Congressman Matt Gaetz immediately responded to this shooting by offering up an alternative to the current screening process that involves the entry of foreigners into the United States and who train at bases throughout the country.

While the U.S. may give aid and weapons to Saudi Arabia, it does not appear that the relationship is reciprocal. The Saudi government’s alleged role in the 9/11 terror attacks is more evidence that this foreign entanglement should be reconsidered.

 

ILLEGAL ALIENS PACK NEW YORK DMVS AFTER STATE ALLOWS DRIVER’S LICENSES FOR ALL

Illegal Aliens Pack New York DMVs After State Allows Driver's Licenses For All

‘This is all a power grab for the ballot box in New York, trying to give illegals the right to vote,’ says NY clerk

  – DECEMBER 16, 2019

Massive droves of illegal aliens are lining up at DMVs across New York to obtain newly-minted driver’s licenses after the state passed a law allowing illegals to obtain them.

Photos across social media show long lines of illegals streaming to various Department of Motor Vehicle buildings across New York trying to acquire driver’s licenses.

The so-called Green Light Law, signed by Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

The law also prohibits employees at auto bureaus from reporting illegal aliens attempting to obtain driver licenses to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns argued that the new law allowing illegals to obtain driver’s licenses was an unconstitutional “power grab” that Democrats will leverage to commit voter fraud.

“This is all a power grab for the ballot box in New York, trying to give illegals the right to vote,” Kearns told Fox News on Saturday.

“So we are going to have voter fraud in New York state, and now New York state has given the clerks an edict to stands down. I’m not standing down. I will do whatever I can to stop voter fraud.”

Kearns also added that the new law is unconstitutional and will only make New Yorkers less safe.

“My concern is that, after 9/11, New York state put a prohibition on illegals having driving licenses and now with REAL ID in 2005 after we were attacked there will be a gap from today to Oct. 1 that anyone who is here illegally can get into a federal building and can fly on our airplanes and cross our border.”

“I am now going to have to accept a report card from a foreign country and…a foreign passport as authenticated documents. I myself as the clerk am going to have to do that,” he continued.

“We used to have to rely on a third party, the fed government, to do that so they have diminished a New York driver’s license, and we are very concerned for our safety and security because western New York is a border to Canada.”

As we’ve reported, Democrats have been exploiting illegal immigrants for political gain at least since 2016, which is why the left is so hell-bent on granting amnesty to all illegal aliens in the U.S., including the ones still illegally entering the country.

 

“BLACKFACE” TRUDEAU WANTS “SIGNIFICANT PENALTIES” FOR ONLINE “HATE SPEECH”

"Blackface" Trudeau Wants "Significant Penalties" For Online "Hate Speech"

Hypocrite Canadian PM moves to end free speech in the Great White North

  – DECEMBER 16, 2019

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is asking his ministers to create “significant penalties” for individuals engaging in “hate speech” on social media.

In a letter written to Minister of Canadian Heritage Steven Guilbeault, Trudeau asked that social media companies be required to “remove illegal content, including hate speech, within 24 hours or face significant penalties.”

“This should include other online harms such as radicalization, incitement to violence, exploitation of children, or creation or distribution of terrorist propaganda,” the Prime Minister continued.

Trudeau also wrote a letter to Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada David Lametti, instructing him to work with his colleagues “to combat online hate and harassment.”

Canada appears to be following the lead of European nations like Germany, France and England, who have “anti-hate speech” laws in the books.

In the UK, people can be fined or even imprisoned for “hate speech,” while in Germany, social media companies are fined millions of dollars for failing to combat content labeled “hate speech.”

In France, social media sites who don’t remove “hate speech” within 24 hours can be fined up to €1.25m (£1.12m).

Ironically, Justin Trudeau was recently caught in a major scandal after several photos of him wearing blackface were made public.

Would the Canadian Prime Minister be punished for the images under his proposed “anti-hate speech” agenda?

House of Representatives Passes Amnesty for 1 Million+ Illegal Immigrant Farmworkers

See the source image

The legislation seeks to provide cheap labor for the agricultural industry.

By

In the midst of tedious impeachment proceedings, the House of Representatives united beyond party lines to mass an amnesty bill for more than a million illegal immigrants Wednesday.

The Farm Workforce Modernization Act passed by 260 votes to 165, receiving 34 votes from Republicans. Three Democrats voted no.

The bill creates a process for illegals to apply for legal residency in the United States on the basis of their employment in the agricultural sector. Individuals who have worked in the industry for six months in the past two years will be able to apply for residency, should the legislation be signed into law.

The bill’s supporters claim it is necessary in order to solve a supposed labor shortage affecting the American agricultural industry and lowering the profit margins of business owners. However, they ignore that many farmers would be able to hire American workers if they were willing to pay better wages.

More than a million illegals would be eligible for residency and eventually a path to citizenship under the law’s rules.

The illegals that are often employed in California’s agricultural industry are willing to work in uncomfortable conditions for wages that are far lower than what Americans would typically be willing to work for. Bureau of Labor statistics reveal that the median hourly wage in the agricultural industry in 2014 was a paltry $10.55, hardly a wage that Americans can afford to live on.

It’s no surprise that entrenched corporate interests are hoping to bend the rules of the American immigration system in order to get more cheap labor. Lobby groups for Big Agriculture closely pushed the bill.

One Republican supporter of the Amnesty legislation even took the opportunity to take a shot at American workers upon its House passage, falsely claiming that Americans simply want to stay at home and play Xbox all day instead of working arduous jobs.

The legislation now goes to the Senate. It’s unclear if it’ll be taken up by Senate Majority Leader, who has a mixed record on opposing amnesty legislation and cheap labor giveaways for big corporations.

 

Alabama Congressman Claims that Americans Fork Over $60 Billion to Educate Illegal Aliens

By Jose Nino

Representative Bradley Byrne told his Congressional colleagues during a hearing on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 that American taxpayers pay over about $60 billion to educate illegal alien students and the children of illegal aliens.

Byrne highlighted that the burden of paying for the education of more than 1.5 million legal and illegal immigrants coming into the country annually is shouldered by American citizens.

“In 2016, the Pew Research Center estimated that 3.9 million — or 7.3% — of kindergarten through 12th grade students in the United States were either here illegally or were the children of at least one parent illegally present in the United States,” Byrne stated. “Can anyone tell me how much we spend on public education for that population of students? It’s around $60 billion.”

The Republican congressman detailed that while the federal government requires English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for approximately 9.6 percent of American students who have Limited English Proficiency (LEP), state and local governments must bear the majority of the costs.

“What percentage of ESL programs are paid for by the federal government that requires them? Just over one percent,” Byrne declared. “Who pays for the rest? States and local school systems.”

Byrne stated:

So, we require it and we push 99 percent of the costs on state and local school systems. That costs a lot of money for these state and local school systems. Many of them, like my state of Alabama, just don’t have it. But because the federal government requires it, they have to put that money in there to the detriment of other programs.

That cost is not being borne by those of us in Washington. It’s being borne by men and women and the states and local school systems around the United States of America. But really the cost is being borne by children who are being denied the programs that they should have. Children who are citizens of the United States, whose parents are citizens of the United States, they’re being denied programs because we’re forcing their state and local school systems to take on an expense that we should be taking on because we’ve failed to enforce our own laws.

Steven Kopits conducted a study that showed the United States could have up to one million new migrant children by the November 2020 election — about 800,000 of those would need to be enrolled in local school districts.

There are steep costs to mass migration. From being a massive burden for taxpayers to its politically destabilizing effects, mass migration presents a unique threat to the United States.

The 2020 election will likely feature immigration as one of the top issues, which the Trump campaign likely recognizes given its popularity among GOP voters.

Fox News Host Banned From Twitter for Sharing Pensacola Terrorist’s Manifesto

They don’t want the Saudi national’s Islamist manifesto to get out.

By

A Fox News host has been banned from Twitter after sharing the manifesto of a Saudi military trainee-turned Islamist terrorist who carried out a mass shooting at a Pensacola, Florida Naval installation.

Pete Hegseth shared screenshots of postings on Saturday made by Saudi national Mohammed Alshamrani shortly before the attack. Alshamrani espoused on his motivations for the terrorist actions, in which he killed three U.S Navy sailors and wounded eight more.

Alshamrani created a manifesto in which he referred to the United States as a “nation of evil,” attacked Israel, and praised Osama bin Laden.

Hegseth shared elements of his manifesto, only to go dark on Twitter sometime shortly after. He posted on Instagram on Sunday revealing that he had been banned from the platform for exposing Alshamrani’s manifesto, slamming the platform’s censorship tactics that leave the public in the dark after terrorist attacks.

Hegseth is appealing his permanent ban from Twitter, but he expressed doubt the platform would let him back on

Twitter has banned individuals who have posted writings made by terrorists before, such as the El Paso Walmart mass shooter and the New Zealand anti-Muslim terrorist. But it seems as if the platform is merely keeping the motivations of violent individuals in the dark and creating confusion by its broad policy.

In another concerning development, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has confirmed that other Saudi nationals present at the Pensacola Naval Air Station filmed Alshamrani’s attack.

Screen Shot 2019-12-10 at 9.55.33 AM

Alshamrani’s terrorist attack against U.S military personnel, and the apparent involvement of other Saudi military trainees, raises serious questions about ongoing programs that facilitate the training of Saudi military personnel in the United States.
