U.S. intelligence officials say the terrorist who laced into a police officer and ran down four pedestrians in Edmonton was actually a Somalian Muslim refugee from San Diego who’d been ordered deported years ago by a federal judge.
Abdulahi Hasan Sharif was just in court this week to face 11 charges, including five for attempted murder.
Come to find out — he’s a refugee taking shelter in San Diego’s massive Somali refugee community, which is estimated in the range of 10,000 to 20,000.
The city took in 135 more Somali refugees in the fiscal year that just wrapped September 30. This, despite the fact Somalia is on the list of terror countries — and is one of the handful of countries this White House named in its travel ban.
San Diego also took in 287 Syrians and 34 Iranian refugees this fiscal year — two more nations known as terror hotspots.

A man facing attempted murder charges for allegedly ramming pedestrians with a car and stabbing a police officer in Edmonton last weekend was deported from the United States by immigration officials in 2011, The Associated Press reports.
Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, a 30-year-old Somali refugee, crossed legally into Canada in 2012 at a border crossing and obtained refugee status, according to Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. There was no information on Sharif at the time that would have raised any red flags to authorities.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada later added that an immigration-related detention would not prevent someone from making an asylum claim in Canada.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said a man named Abdullahi Hassan Sharif in the agency’s records was ordered to leave the U.S.
The names are spelled slightly differently, but a Canadian and U.S. government official — both of whom requested anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss details of the case — said it is the same man, according to Associated Press.
A statement from ICE spokesperson Lauren Mack issued Tuesday night said Sharif was transferred on July 15, 2011 into ICE custody at Otay Mesa Detention Center, a Californian prison.
