(Newser) – Coincidence or no? Three days after Kim Kardashian tweeted apparent criticism of President Trump's "Muslim ban," immigration officials decided to keep up with the Kardashians in the form of searching her family's jet when it landed at LAX, the Daily Beast reports. Kardashian, who had also retweeted others critical of the ban, tweeted a chart Sunday showing the number of Americans killed annually by such things as falling out of bed (737), armed toddlers (21), and being shot by another American (11,737) compared to the number killed annually by Islamic jihadist immigrants (2).

Her family was in Costa Rica at the time, and upon their return to Los Angeles early Wednesday, immigration officials "scoured" the plane, per the Sun, which has photos. Later Wednesday, Kardashian was back in New York, testifying before a judge who flew in from France about her robbery case, TMZ reports. (One of the robbers explains how Kim was targeted.)
