Agents: Syrian Migrant Confronts ICE Agents with Illegal Firearm

A Syrian national living near Indianapolis, Indiana, allegedly confronted agents from Homeland Security Investigations with a handgun he is not legally entitled to possess. The Syrian man also had an AR-15 style rifle in his home. A federal grand jury indicted 24-year-old Majid Al Helwani, a Syrian national living in the U.S. on a non-immigrant tourist visa, on charges of unlawfully purchasing and possessing firearms and lying on federal forms while attempting to purchase additional weapons, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials. The indictment states that agents from ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) learned from a “concerned citizen” in December 2017 that Al Helwani had at least one firearm in his possession. The tipster claimed the foreign national had an AR-15 style, .223 caliber rifle. The investigation uncovered Al Helwani’s immigration status as a non-immigrant tourist. This status prohibits the foreign national from owning, purchasing, or possessing a firearm. The agents obtained a search warrant and went to the Syrian’s home in an Indianapolis suburb. When the agents approached his home, Al Helwani opened the door with a loaded 9mm pistol. A search of the home also uncovered a Sabal Arms

Maddow: ‘Feels Very Palpable’ ‘That the President Is a Foreign Agent’

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” MSNBC host Rachel Maddow stated that “The worst case scenario that the president is a foreign agent suddenly feels very palpable.” Maddow said, “The basic question, which I think rung so loud for everybody in the country this week was, is our president subordinate to a foreign power? Does our president answer to a foreign government and a foreign leader? And that’s private meeting with Putin, where nobody knows what he promised or what he may have given away, the way that he responded to Putin when we saw him face-to-face, and then the fact that he took under consideration all of these demands from Russia, including handing over Americans to Russia for interrogation. That just — you know, it makes the worst case scenario really palpable. The worst case scenario that the president is a foreign agent suddenly feels very palpable.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Dem Rep Demings: Trump ‘Did Everything But Ask the Russian Dictator for His Autograph’

On Saturday’s “MSNBC Live,” Representative Val Demings (D-FL) said that during his press conference in Helsinki with Vladimir Putin, President Trump “did everything but ask the Russian dictator for his autograph.” She further stated Putin “has to be the happiest man on earth right now.” Demings argued the summit shouldn’t have been held, and if it was held, the president should have used it to “confront” Putin. She further said that during the press conference, Trump “basically used Putin’s talking points and did everything but ask the Russian dictator for his autograph.” She added, “Vladimir Putin has to be the happiest man on earth right now. For the president of the United States to attack, while on foreign soil, the institutions of the United States, particularly, the intelligence community, who, after their investigation, indicated that they had reached the decision with high confidence that Russia directly interfered in the 2016 election, for the president of the United States to stand on the stage with the Russian dictator and attack those institutions is disappointing, just unbelievable, and I just can’t believe he did that.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
