All three men are naturalized U.S. citizens who were born in Kenya. The complaint alleges that all three men pledged allegiance to ISIS in homemade videos. The conspiracy charge carries a punishment of up to 20 years in federal prison.

Three Michigan residents were arrested Monday afternoon for conspiring to support ISIS, federal authorities said.
Muse Abdikadir Muse, 20, was arrested by law enforcement officers during security screening at the Gerald R. Ford Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan, after checking in for the first of a series of flights to Mogadishu, Somalia. His 23-year-old brother, Mohamud Abdikadir Muse, and their 26-year-old brother-in-law, Mohamed Salat Haji, were arrested in the airport terminal soon after, according to a criminal complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan.
All three men are naturalized U.S. citizens who were born in Kenya and currently reside in Lansing, Michigan.
The family first came to the attention of the FBI in April 2016 when a review of Mohamud Abdikadir Muse’s public Facebook page “revealed frequent posts of photos, videos, and statements and commentary that were pro-ISIS in nature and what can be described as violent, extremist propaganda,” the complaint states.

It seems that Michigan has a little more than their share of this type of thing, I wonder why that is? There is something terribly wrong with the laws and legal system of our country if any of these three men are ever allowed to live free in America again.
Sadly their charges so far are only prosecutable for up to a maximum of 20 years in federal prison. Considering the leniency of our courts today we’ll be lucky if any of them serve even 10 years.

Just when I’d given up hope than the FBI had any competent non-political field agents left these heroes appeared. Thanks to The FBI for protecting us from these terrorists.
