On December 6, a Saudi Arabian citizen killed 3 people and injured 8 in a shooting at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida. Ahmed Mohammed al-Shamrani was in the U.S. on an A-2 visa for military training. 3 Republican senators sent a letter to DHS asking for details on the vetting process for al-Shamrani, including specific vetting actions and any interviews he went through. The letter also asks about any social media monitoring done, and how often A-visa holders have been refused entry into the U.S. by CBP.
