    DHS: Harrisburg Shootings a ‘Terror Attack’



    Harrisburg Police block off sections of the street after a shooting, Friday, Dec. 22, 2017.

    The Department of Homeland Security is labeling a triple-shooting in Pennsylvania a “terror attack.”

    The incident happened Friday with the suspect opening fire on police officers at three different locations in the state’s capital of Harrisburg.

    Reports say one officer was injured after the shootout, that left the suspect dead.

    According to the DHS press release, the suspect has been identified as 51-year-old Egyptian national Ahmed El-Mofty, who had ties to the Middle East and recently returned from a trip to the region.

    U.S. labels Harrisburg shootings a terror attack

    The federal government has labeled a man's shooting at police on Friday in Harrisburg an act of terror.

    A Pennsylvania State Police trooper was wounded and pursued by Ahmed Amin El-Mofty before the suspect was eventually shot and killed, the Associated Press said.

    A tweet from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, meant to connect El-Mofty to an immigration program that allows extended family members to enter the United States, also called the shootings at various city and state police personnel "a terror attack."


    Harrisburg gunman targeted police, wounding 1: prosecutor
    Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty fired at city, state and Capitol police before being shot and killed.

    El-Mofty was a beneficiary of "extended family chain migration," the tweet from Tyler Q. Houlton said.

    "The long chain of migration that led to the suspect's admission into the United States was initiated years ago by a distant relative of the suspect," Houlton said.

    El-Mofty was a naturalized citizen who came from Egypt and entered on a family-based immigration visa, Houlton said.

    This and a second incident involving a naturalized citizen of Pakistani descent being charged with laundering bitcoins to support ISIS, "highlight the Trump administration's concerns with extended family chain migration," Houlton wrote. "Both chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program have been exploited by terrorists to attack our country."

    The trooper who was wounded was "doing well," the Associated Press said on Saturday.

    El-Mofty pursued the trooper to a residential neighborhood, where city and state police encountered him, the Associated Press reported.

    "He approached them with two handguns ... firing many shots at those police officers," and the officers returned fire, killing him, Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said, according to the AP.

    DHS: Suspects In Terror-Related Crimes Came To US Through Chain Migration

    DHS: Suspects In Terror-Related Crimes Came To US Through Chain Migration

    9:56 AM 12/24/2017

    Two suspects in recent terrorism-related cases were able to move to the U.S. through chain migration, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

    In a statement shared Saturday on Twitter, Acting DHS Press Secretary Tyler Houlton said the agency could “confirm the suspect involved in a terror attack in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and another suspect arrested on terror-related money laundering charges were both beneficiaries of extended family chain migration.”



    In the Harrisburg incident, Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty allegedly went on a shooting spree near the state Capitol building, targeting police officers in multiple surprise attacks. He injured one state trooper before being shot and killed by police.

    Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marisco said there was “no doubt” El-Mofty was deliberately trying to kill police.

    “He fired several shots at a Capitol police officer and at a Pennsylvania state police trooper in marked vehicles,” Marsico told reporters Saturday, according to the Associated Press.

    El-Mofty was a naturalized citizen from Egypt who was originally admitted to the U.S. on a family-based visa, according to DHS.

    “The long chain of migration that led to the suspect’s admission into the United States was initiated years ago by a distant relative of the suspect,” Houlton said.

    Chain migration, or extended-family immigration, is the process by which a recent arrival to the U.S. can sponsor relatives for immigrant visas of their own. Critics of the system say it allows too much immigration on the basis of family ties alone, instead of potential economic contributions or ability to assimilate. About 70 percent of all immigrants admitted to the U.S. over the last decade were chain migration immigrants.

    Houlton’s statement also referred to the case of Zoobia Shahnaz, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan. On Dec. 14, Shahnaz was indicted for allegedly laundering more than $85,000 through Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to fund Islamic State fighters overseas. She sent the funds to people in Pakistan, China and Turkey and planned to travel to Syria to fight with the remnants of ISIS, according to federal investigators.

    Shahnaz came to the U.S. on an F43 visa, which is granted to the children of siblings of U.S. citizens. The F4 category has come under scrutiny in recent months, after homeland security officials revealed the suspects in two separate terror attacks in New York were admitted on F43 visas.

    “Both chain migration and the diversity visa lottery program have been exploited by terrorists to attack our country,” Houlton said. “Not only are the programs less effective at driving economic growth than merit-based immigration systems used by nearly all other countries, the programs make it more difficult to keep dangerous people out of the United States and to protect the safety of every American.”

    The Trump administration and several GOP lawmakers have called for reforms to the chain migration system, possibly as a part of a bill that gives legal status to recipients of the now-cancelled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
