The problem is he is an AMERICAN BORN CITIZEN, not some illegal or wannabe immigrant. I have cousins in N.Ireland. If I went to visit them should the FBI be able to refuse to let me fly home?

"They" don't say _____-American. We do. In order to properly describe people who aren't white we (white society)insist on clarifying. We used to rudely clump varieous ethnic groups together. All people with Asian heritage were called "orientals" people of those ethnic backgrounds didn't like that and basically said "if you have to call us anything, call us Asian-Americans." Most of people of obvious ethnic heritage insist on the "American" part because they don't like being referred to as Somali, or Chinese, or Peruvian when they worked so hard to get here.

Here's the thing. No _____-American will ever take offense if you simply call them an American. In fact, most of them would be thrilled if you saw past their ethnicity and simply accepted them as a countryman.

Yes, it should. If you're consorting with terrorists, you're a threat.

Somalis (for the most part) are not loyal Americas. They are Muslims first, last and forever. Their loyalty is for the world wide domination of Islam. They want to replace the Consititution with Sharia Law and to force Americans to live under Sharia, ban pork and make all women wear hoods and burkas in 90 degree heat.
