Emraan Ali, a Trinidad and Tobago-born U.S. naturalized citizen, allegedly traveled in March 2014 with his wife, one step child, and six children to Syria to join ISIS. Ali surrendered to Syrian Democratic Forces in Baghouz, Syria, the last ISIS stronghold. He agreed to be interviewed by the FBI in August 2019 and allegedly told agents that he had been a member of an ISIS fighting group before being discharged. He then worked residential construction jobs for ISIS, he reportedly told FBI agents. Ali also helped facilitate money transfers from Trinidad to Trinidadian ISIS fighters in Syria, according to the government.
