Report: Female SB Shooter Entered U.S. on 'Fiancée' Visa With Wrong Address
Separate report says husband had contact with people connected to at least two terror orgs
The ISIS-inspired female terrorist in the recent mass-killings in San Bernardino, Cal., reportedly entered the country on a so-called “fiancée visa” that listed a false or at least inaccurate foreign home address.
The woman, Tashfeen Malik, listed an address in her home country of Pakistan. This summer, she received her Green Card, which allows immigrants to legally live and work in the United States, according to ABC News.
The Department of Homeland Security did not respond Saturday to a Fox News’ request for comment.
The issue is raising questions about the U.S.’s vetting process for immigrants, amid growing concerns that Middle East terrorists could be slipping into the country.
Malik and husband Syed Rizwan Farook killed 14 people Wednesday in San Bernardino, about an hour east of Los Angeles.
She and Farook were killed in a shootout with police after the deadly shootings.
Farook traveled to Saudi Arabia and returned to the United States with Malik in July 2014. They were married the next month and had a 6-month-old daughter.
Farook reportedly had contact with people connected to at least two foreign terrorist organizations before the couple opened fire in the San Bernardino office building.
The Los Angeles Times, citing an anonymous federal law enforcement official, reports that Farook was in contact with members of the Al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front and the African extremist group Al-Shabaab. The official told the Times there was “some type” of contact between Farook and the terror groups, but it was unclear what kind of contact the parties had.
