Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Wife Received Welfare Benefits

The Boston Herlad mentions that Tsarnaev, his wife and now three-year-old daughter have all received welfare up to 2012, when Katherine Russell Tsarnaev got a full-time job. He has not worked during this time. 

His parents were also recipients when Tamerlan and brother Dzhokhar, now charged for the attacks, were very young.

In a 2009 interview, Tsarnaev dubbed himself a “very-religious” man who did not understand Americans and did not have any friends in the country.

However, later reports showed that he was very close with a man possibly tied to drug trafficking, who died in suspicious circumstances three years ago. The case file on his murder remains open to this day.

As detailed today, Tamerlan's family pinpointed a mystery man going by the name “Misha” who allegedly convinced the suspect to convert to Islam and played a major part in his radicalization.





His parents aren't citizens, the terrorists were not citizens, how the hell did the parents get welfare???  We paid for them to raise terrorists.

A lot of the population of the US receives benefits, how could they forsee what would happen? Theres probably people collecting right now who may do similar things in the future. How would you propose weeding them out?

It doesn't bother you that our tax dollars went to a terrorist??

 Is there a point to this, or are you trolling again?

 The wife is a U.S. born citizen.  The younger brother became a U.S. citizen.  I can't say how the parents received welfare (if they indeed did) as I am not fully educated on all of the rules and regulations of obtaining aid. 

I do not think their parents came to the U.S. with the intention of raising terrorists.  From what I've read, many were surprised these brothers ended up taking that route.  I don't think putting the blame on their parents is constructive at all.

OP, you have some serious issues.

At this point, you are acting just as 'radical'.

Lol. How did they find this out anyway? Is welfare recipients public knowledge or privacy protected? Just curious.

 How do you know this?

Quoting Imacakebaker:

The mom is a radical Muslim.  They raised them to hate America.
