Former National Guard soldier guilty of aiding ISIL

BBC:
A former US National Guard soldier who was convicted of plotting to aid the Islamic State group has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Mohamed Jalloh, 27, a naturalised US citizen, pleaded guilty in October 2016 to providing material support to a foreign terrorist organisation.

Jalloh told investigators he had also tried to travel to Libya and considered a shooting attack against US soldiers.

In September 2016, another soldier was sentenced for supporting the group.

Former National Guard specialist Hasan Edmonds was given 30 years in prison for planning an attack against soldiers at the Joliet Armory in Illinois.

Jalloh, of Sterling, Virginia, quit the National Guard after hearing lectures from radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, according to a statement from the US Department of Justice.

During a six-month trip to Africa in 2015, Jalloh met with IS members in Nigeria.

He is one of 100 people in the US to be charged with terror offences related to IS since 2014, according to the George Washington University Extremism Tracker.

The story does not identify what country Jalloh was from before becoming a US citizen.  Other sources indicate he was Sierra Leone.  He is accused of planning a Fort Hood-style terrorist attack like that of Maj. Nidal Hassan.  Jalloh also praised the Chattanooga attack on recruiters.

Why is the US allowing people who hate the US to immigrate to this country?
