Newly Revealed Data About 72 Convicted Terrorists Proves 9th Circuit Judges Wrong

A review by the Center for Immigration Studies has revealed that a major component of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling blocking President Trump’s temporary immigration ban is factually false.

The study, released Saturday, shows that dozens of individuals from the seven countries listed in Trump’s travel ban have been convicted of terrorism offenses since 9/11.

As The Daily Caller points out, the 9th Circuit’s ruling — by Judges Michelle T. Friedland, William C. Canby, and Richard R. Clifton — explicitly stated that there was no evidence of a danger posed by the seven countries on the list.

“A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks,” the study reads

“These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the 9th Circuit judges who have blocked the president’s order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.”

The information was compiled from a 2016 report from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, chaired by Sen. Jeff Sessions, the Alabama Republican who is now Trump’s attorney general. The report was based on publicly available information, since the Obama administration refused to cooperate.

“The Center has extracted information on 72 individuals named in the Senate report whose country of origin is one of the seven terror-associated countries included in the vetting executive order: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen,” the report reads. “The Senate researchers were not able to obtain complete information on each convicted terrorist, so it is possible that more of the convicted terrorists are from these countries.”

“According to the report, at least 17 individuals entered as refugees from these terror-prone countries. Three came in on student visas and one arrived on a diplomatic visa,” the Center for Immigration Studies report added. “At least 25 of these immigrants eventually became citizens. Ten were lawful permanent residents, and four were illegal aliens.”

Perhaps what’s scariest is that this report doesn’t include the most recent incident of an individual from one of these seven nations committing a terrorist attack: Abdul Razak Ali Artan, the Somali refugee who used his car and a knife to attack students at the Ohio State University, was arrested after the study was conducted.

We’ve already told you about many of the holes in the 9th Circuit’s case. As Conservative Review pointed out, the Washington federal judge who originally struck down the travel ban made the same mistake, asking government attorneys during the hearing, “How many arrests have there been of foreign nationals for those seven countries since 9/11? .. Let me tell you. The answer to that is none, as best I can tell.”

The 9th Circuit’s ruling is deeply flawed. Thankfully, it’s one of the most reversed courts in the nation, and we hope that holds true in this case.
