A teenager from Aurora is due in federal court Tuesday to face terrorism charges.

Abdella Tounisi, 18, is charged with aiding a terrorist organization.

Federal agents arrested him at O’Hare airport April 19, just before he could board a flight to Turkey.

The feds say he planned to join a terrorist group in Syria.

They say Tounisi had been in contact with a terrorism recruiter, who was actually an FBI agent.

    They worry about South and Westside shootings, but what about the terrorists living right next door. They come into this country and get everything. They are living in big houses in the burbs and owning businesses. Just like you are trying to put a stop on gun violence, you need to stop letting everyone into this country. We teach these people how to kill us. They are being trained by our Military against us. Wake up and smell the coffee.
