DHS Gave Somali Migrants Tours of Airport Security Systems Too Sensitive for FOIA Release


Did you know this? Somali migrants were given tours of security systems in the airport because of profiling complaints. The fake stream media certainly didn’t report it. Judicial Watch reported this August 2nd and we also reported it.

It’s back in the news because Judicial Watch released 31 pages of it obtained via FOIA. The Department of Homeland Security took the Somali migrants on “community engagement tours”  at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in February. The tours also took place at airports in LA and Columbus, Ohio.

What was DHS trying to do? Let PC trump all common sense.

The Somali immigrant groups provided information that was so sensitive the government blacked out portions of the documents it gave to Judicial Watch, citing a law enforcement “risk circumvention” exception to FOIA.

“Logically, information that is too sensitive to provide to Judicial Watch and the public should not have been given to a ‘community engagement tour,’” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a prepared statement. “The U.S. government has been aware for years that Minnesota is a hotbed of Somali terrorist-cell activity. The behind-the-scenes tours and security briefings of the Minneapolis airport very well could have created a threat to public safety.”

The documents released by Judicial Watch noted that authorities vetted people whom they allowed into secure areas.

One email indicates that authorities rejected two people who did not pass the security review the previous year.

Another email from a Customs and Border Protection official mentioned a man “who gave Chicago CBP a hard time after attending the last outreach event — guessing they might bring it up so whoever is going to be there might want to read over” information that was redacted in the copy released to Judicial Watch.

Most of our US terrorists come from the Somali immigrant community.

These refugees, with no ties to the US, received briefings on the Global Entry system, the passport control system, screening procedures, even baggage-screening procedures. They were allowed to see holding cells and interview rooms.

Best yet, they discussed Immigration and Border Patrol as well as TSA job vacancies at the Minneapolis airport as part of their outreach.

In 2014, DHS did the same thing because the Somali Muslim group complained to Jeh Johnson about feeling they were harassed and profiled. The tours were to seek feedback.

We kid you not!

The “step-by-step tour” of the operations were scheduled around Muslim prayer times.

One must wonder how ISIS terrorist baggage handler Abdirizak Warsame was hired in Meeneapolis. It doesn’t sound like they screen. In fact, they do the opposite.

CNN reported that another Somali man, accused war criminal Yusuf Abdi Ali, was working as a security officer at Dulles International Airport outside of Washington, D.C. CNN reported that he is one of more than 1,000 accused war criminals living in the United States. He allegedly committed atrocities while he was a military commander during Somalia’s civil war in the 1980s.
