Somali Man Sentenced to 10 Years For Lying About Terror Links

According to several reports,  Somali man arrested on the Texas-Mexico border in 2008 has been sentenced by a U.S. federal judge to 10 years in prison for lying about his links to two terror groups.

Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane pleaded guilty to lying on his asylum application and failing to disclose ties to two groups the United States has listed as terror groups. Dhakane, Justice Department officials allege, was involved in human smuggling operations earlier this decade.
