Does America have an Islamic Immigrant/Refugee Terrorist Problem?

This past week Senator Sessions released a list of recent immigrants/refugees who had engaged in terrorist actions against the United States of America. His list was far from complete. I am adding an additional 14 immigrants/refugees to his list. My list, like his, is far from complete. 

Please keep in mind that those listed here are not listed for engaging in actions that would only kill one or two. Their goals were much more devastating.

Credit for making this information available belongs to the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

(If you have others you would like to add to this list that were arrested after 9/11/2001 please do contact me with the information. I will credit your contribution and add them to this list.)
