On Thursday, news broke that terror-related arrests were made in Sacramento, California, and Houston, Texas.  The individuals are said to have connections to ISIS and both are refugees.

Nevertheless, authorities say there is no immediate danger to the public.

The Chron reported:

In a statement late Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice said Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, a Palestinian born in Iraq, has been charged with attempting to “provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), a designated foreign terrorist organization.”

The indictment, unsealed Thursday, also alleges that Al Hardan, an Iraqi refugee who lives in Houston and was granted permanent resident status in 2011, unlawfully attempted to become a U.S. citizen and lied to authorities about his connections to a “terrorist organization.”

A separate report said:

A Sacramento resident was arrested today on a federal charge of making a false statement involving international terrorism. Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab, 23, is charged in a criminal complaint that was unsealed today in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California following his arrest.

“Aws Mohammed Younis Al-Jayab allegedly traveled overseas to fight alongside terrorist organizations and lied to U.S. authorities about his activities,” said Assistant Attorney General Carlin. “The National Security Division’s highest priority is protecting the nation from terrorism, and we will continue to hold accountable those who seek to join or aid the cause of terrorism, whether at home or abroad.”

But wait — Hillary Clinton told us Muslims don’t ever engage in this type of behavior.  Did she get confused again?

According to Twitchy, both suspects are set to appear in court today.
