GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Bond has been denied for three Michigan men who are accused of conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State group.

Defense lawyers say it was a lot of talk but no action. But U.S. Magistrate Judge Phillip Green had a different interpretation Thursday, saying the men were willing to die for the militant organization. He ordered them held in jail.

The evidence mostly consists of social media posts and private messages.

The three from Lansing were arrested at the Grand Rapids airport on Jan. 21. Investigators say 20-year-old Muse Muse was planning to fly to Somalia to join IS. A brother, Mohamud Muse, and a third man, Mohamed Haji, were also charged.

They are naturalized U.S. citizens who were born in Kenya.

      We do let them all in. Remember when our president tried to put a stop to it? So we could come up with a better way to screen these people. But all the sad bleeding heart liberal judges in this country had to step in and say ” boo boo boo a travel ban is so inhumane boo boo boo. I can still he their tears hitting the floor. Cant wait till 2020. The rivers will flood with tears

    Love the methodology at work here.
    Spend millions/billions on actually importing these terrorists and their sick ideology into our country from their own distant motherlands…”could spend alot less and just help them there,instead of here..but i digress.”
    Call them “Immigrants” “Refugees”..etc..or some other PC friendly lie.
    Then spend billions more playing “find the terrorists among us” with Homeland Security,TSA etc..etc..
    Then spend a bunch more charging them, providing representation then prosecuting them and then housing them in prison..etc,etc..
    What a circle jerk…
