Paul calls for hearings on Iraqi immigration

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is calling for
Senate hearings to get answers on how two Iraqi refugees were
granted asylum to live in the United States.
Paul made the call for hearings Friday during a press conference
in Bowling Green, where the two were arrested last week after an
FBI investigation.
Thirty-year-old Waad Ramadan Alwan and 23-year-old Mohanad
Shareef Hammadi are facing charges of plotting to send explosives,
guns and missiles to Iraqi insurgents. Neither is charged with
plotting to launch attacks inside the United States, and
authorities said their weapons and money didn't make it to Iraq.
