Arizona Bomber Refused Green Card in 2011–On DHS Watch List

Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security with several questions about the Casa Grande bombing suspect.

The November 30 explosion was one block from Representative Gosar’s Casa Grande office which prompted this statement to his constituents:

“The alleged bomber, Abdullatif Aldosary, is reportedly an Iraqi refugee who was given the privilege to live in our country, but has apparently repaid our generosity and kindness with repeated violence and aggression.  The FBI reports the use of a high explosive called ‘RDX’ that is often used in terrorist plots.   It is my expectation that this case will be fully investigated and the full weight of law enforcement brought to bear. The recent bombing in Casa Grande reminds us that we have to all have a responsibility to be vigilant and to alert authorities of any threats in our communities.”

After viewing the photo of the arrested suspect an aide to Gosar realized she had opened a case file in 2011 at the request of Abdullatif Aldosary, an Iraqi refugee now under arrest for the bombing at the Social Security Office in Casa Grande. At the time, Aldosary had asked about his green card status. During an inquiry by the representative’s aide the office was told that Aldosary was not eligible because DHS had him on their terrorist watch list.

In light of the Casa Grande bombing, Gosar questioned why Aldosary was not detained and processed for deportation in November 2011, after it was determined he had engaged in terrorism-related activity. KPHO has obtained a copy of the letter which can be viewed here.

Others are asking why the FBI continues to call this man a refugee and a lone bomber  rather than a terrorist.

  1. Many Americans questioned the wholesale approval of bringing Iraqi refugees to our soil as it was being done, even though we acknowledged that many had truly been of service & this was their payback for it. ..well, how about USA even being there was for ‘there’ benefit? With the entry of any non-citizen there are safeguards in place to avoid this type of individual from entering that are only effective IF USED. Asylum/Amnesty that involves additional ‘family’ must include background checks on each & every one….With OTM’s swarming our borders at will & the State Department ‘approving’ any & all…one does wonder if we’ve slipped off the edge into another world….If this is as troubling to you or makes you as angry as it does me..make waves!!!Start next door & raise the tide all the way to the White House lawn..

    One more question: Does anyone think this is an isolated incident?

  2. What I find troubling is, what is Abdullatif Aldosary, a so called Iraqi refugee doing in this country if he was on the DHS’s terrorist watch list. If he was eligible for a green card, wouldn’t that make him eligiable for the refugee status too? Also if this is an example of DHS’s keeping an eye on the people on their watch list, it might bring some doubt to mind as to who’s homeland they are securing. Based on past performance of the DHS, it doesn’t look good for our side.
