Mohammed Mohamud's Appeal Denied

Not long after President Trump attempted to point to Mohammed Mohamud, a Somali teen who was the target of an FBI sting operation involving a fake bomb at Pioneer Courthouse Square in 2010, to justify his Muslim travel ban, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals denied Mohamud's appeal. His lawyers had asked a 3-judge panel to overturn the conviction due to prosecutorial misconduct and the entrapment of Mohamud. They did not, despite agreeing mistakes had been made (PPR #70). As for Trump, the Oregonian reports a US Attorney involved in the prosecution said "Mohamud's 'radicalization had precisely nothing to do with his refugee status' and... that the refugee community assisted federal investigators" (Patch.com via Oregonlive, March 7).
