Abdul Razak Ali Artan came to the US in 2014 and is already a US citizen. He came in through the State Dept. sponsored Refugee Resettlement program. People that came through that program got on the fast track to citizenship, given food stamps, free health-care, free education, housing, a monthly stipend, and other perks. And now this guy wanted this. Do you see a problem here?
Authorities had previously confirmed that the suspect was a Somali refugee, legally residing in Ohio.
Furthermore, “The Lantern” — OSU’s campus newspaper — ran an interview with Artan just a few months ago, in which he criticized the school for not having Muslim prayer rooms on campus.
“I wanted to pray in the open, but I was kind of scared with everything going on in the media,” he stated. “I’m a Muslim, it’s not what the media portrays me to be.”
“I don’t blame them,” he continued. “It’s the media that put that picture in their heads so they’re just going to have it, and it’s going to make them feel uncomfortable.”
