Iraqi Refugee in Texas Pleads Guilty to Joining ISIS


An Iraqi-born refugee who is also a citizen of Palestine pleaded guilty to providing material support and swearing allegiance to ISIS.

On Monday, Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan went before U.S. District Judge Lynn N. Hughes in Houston, where he pleaded guilty as part of an agreement with the Justice Department. Judge Hughes accepted the plea and set his sentencing hearing for a later date.

Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed that Al Hardan was born in Iraq on December 25, 1991 and is a Palestinian national. Before moving to the United States, Al Hardan spent time at refugee camps in Jordan and Iraq. The convicted terrorist moved to America on November 2, 2009 and by August 22, 2011 had become a legal permanent resident.

According to prosecutors, Al Hardan applied to become a naturalized citizen in 2014 and lied during the process.
