Republicans are now demanding to know how a British national, Malik Faisal Akram, who had a known history of Islamic extremism was able to get into the United States after he took worshippers at a Texas Synagogue hostage.

As Fox News reports:

Malik Faisal Akram, a British citizen from Blackburn, England, was shot dead by law enforcement over the weekend after he allegdly took hostages at a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas– none were killed. Akram was heard demanding the release of a Pakistani national in prison for trying to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the U.K. Telegraph reported that he had spent three terms in prison, had been a member of radical Islamist group Tablighi Jamaat and been banned from a magistrates court in 2001 for telling an official he wished they had been killed in the 9/11 attacks. The Times of London reported that MI5 had briefly investigated him but determined there was no reason to elevate the case.

Sen. Josh Hawley, who also sits on the committee, wrote to both Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Secretary of State Antony Blinken calling for answers and tied the attack to an alleged failure in vetting by the administration — arguing it is “past time to begin conducting in-person vetting of immigrants to this country.”

“How is anyone with this background allowed to enter our country?” he asked in the letter, noting that Akram’s family had asked a similar question. “Either your Departments knowingly allowed entry to someone with demonstrated sympathies for terrorist organizations and predilection toward violence, or they failed to conduct even a cursory background check.”

House Leader Kevin McCarthy and Sen. Ron Johnson joined Hawley in their criticism of the Biden Administration over the incident.

It’s Criminal Action on Biden’s part. Impeachment should have already happened. Arrest every member of Congress that opposes closing the border for Treason.

Biden and the rest of his admin know exactly what they are doing. And do you really think this guy is the only terrorist that has been let into our country? Hell no! There are plenty of them and there are those who come over the southern border too. I read that the Neo-Nazi groups are joining Hezbolah and other jihadists that are already here to go after Jews. We have Muslim training camps here now that Latino extremist groups want to join up with and then add in the criminals they let out of jails supposedly because of CV, which is B.S. It’s all to create havoc, to kill as many of us that they can to aid in the depopulation plan.

If this was done knowingly, we have a crime to solve and people to arrest and be tried. If it occurred because of a broken process, the process needs to be fixed and ALL visas that were granted previously need to be investigated with the end goal to remove from this country all that got through that should not have. This is the big problem when these incidents come up. No accountability and nobody fixes the problem.

I suspect we have thousands or tens of thousands of terrorists or people with criminal records that should not be here, but got here through the visa process. Who knows how many are here who came here illegally by crossing the southern border.

or got here through the open borders of old Joe and the dimwit nitwits who want their illegal vote ballots to fill out and stuff for voter fraud. Time to up the punishments for voter fraud. Jail time/serious jail time felonies, money penalties that will make them pay as well/ Bankrupt them completely.
