    Let's not forget the two brothers who were responsible for the Boston Bombing.

    As they were Chechens and thus probably came under their Russian citizenship, did they come as Jackson-Varnik refugees?

    The Jackson-Varnik amendment was passed to twist the USSR's arm to let Jews immigrate to Israel. However, as American laws are religiously neutral, the J-V also covers Evangelical Christian-Baptists, Mennonites, and others. It's one of the reasons why the Russian Mafia was able to cross over the pond.
