Rep. Jeff Duncan Joins 'Wilkow!' to Discuss Questions Around the Saudi National Possible Linked to the Boston Bombing


While the main suspects behind the Boston Marathon bombing, Tamerian and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, have been killed and captured respectively; the investigation continues into whether the Tsarnaev brothers acted alone and if there any witnesses out there that could help the prosecution.

A Saudi national originally identified as a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing had been set to be deported under section 212 3B — “security and related grounds” -- after the bombing, but as the story gained traction, TheBlaze reported that the Saudi national, originally identified as Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, may not be deported.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer questions on the subject when confronted by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) on Capitol Hill. While ICE has said a different Saudi national is in custody that is “in no way” connected to the bombings, a congressional source said that the file on Alharbi was created on the basis that he was “linked” in some way to the Boston bombings. Now new information provided to TheBlaze reveals Alharbi’s file was altered early Wednesday evening to disassociate him from the initial charges.

Rep. Jeff Duncan joined 'Wilkow!' Monday to discuss the terrorist association to the Saudi national "person of interest," if he is going to be deported, and why there is not more congressional pressure on the DHS for clarity on the issue. Duncan explained that it is unclear where the Saudi National is right now, but said hopefully he is under surveillance. Watch a clip from the segment on TheBlaze TV Monday:
