Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions identified 72 U.S. residents charged with terror-related crimes in the past year and sent the Obama administration a letter in August requesting details on their immigration histories. They provided an incomplete chart with the letter, and asked the Obama administration to fill it in by Sept. 4, but have received no response.

The Obama administration has not responded to a demand from senators for details on the immigration history of dozens of U.S. residents arrested on terror-related charges.
“It is quite telling that this Administration — which seems to have unlimited resources to circumvent our immigration laws and further its executive amnesties — cannot find the time or resources to provide timely answers to these simple questions,” Sessions and Cruz wrote in a joint statement Tuesday.
“Moreover, after this past weekend’s barbaric attacks in Paris, the Administration’s continued insistence on pursuing the massive resettlement of countless individuals from unstable areas of the world reveals a flagrant disregard for the safety and security of the American people,” they continued.
They had asked for details, such as citizenship status, the date of naturalization and the immigration status of the parents of those residents publicly charged with terror crimes.
