Omar Ameen (ISIS terrorist dude)The arrest of an ISIS terrorist in California debunks the suggestion that refugees being admitted into the United States are being properly vetted.

Federal agents swarmed a Sacramento apartment complex Aug. 15, where they arrested 45-year-old Iraqi national Omar Ameen (pictured at right) for the murder of an Iraqi police officer in 2014.

Ameen, a longtime Islamic State member, fled to Turkey then to the United States in 2015, where he worked as a truck loader and an auto mechanic after the killing, The Sacramento Bee reported. 

He is set to face extradition to Iraq to face trial for killing the policeman.  

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says Ameen escaping to the United States is what happens when supposed refugees are coming from countries where there is no infrastructure in place to perform proper background checks.  

"Especially given the volume of people that we're trying to process," he observes, "these sort of mistakes are inevitable and the consequences can be very serious."

According to the Bee, citing court documents, Ameen was known for "numerous acts" of terrorism that included murder and planting IEDs, and he was considered to be an influential terrorist leader in the Al-Anbar province.

Despite being approved to come to the United States, he returned to Iraq from Turkey and killed the policeman outside his home. 

Meanwhile, Mehlman tells OneNewsNow the Trump administration is facing an October 1 deadline to determine how many refugees will be allowed to enter the U.S. That number should be small, he says, until the process can be improved.
