Shocker: Alleged Islamic Terrorist Arrested in NYC on Visa Fraud Charge

Via National Post:

A Tunisian the FBI says “radicalized” VIA Rail terror suspect Chiheb Esseghaier has been charged with terrorism-related offences in New York following an undercover investigation.

Ahmed Abassi, a former resident of Canada, was arrested in New York on April 22 at the same time the RCMP picked up Mr. Esseghaier and his co-accused Raed Jaser but the case had remained sealed until Thursday.

He was to appear in court at 3 p.m. to face two counts alleging he had fraudulently applied for a U.S. work visa to facilitate an act of international terrorism. The RCMP was involved in the probe, the U.S. Justice Department said. . .

But we still can't call him an illegal immigrant, right? So, so confusing. - Greg Pollowitz
