Rasmea Odeh, a 70-year old woman with a criminal history record that does include both murder and terrorism, is on her way out of the United States. She has been stripped out of her United States citizenship and was ordered to be deported.
Historically, many immigrants to the United States have become more valuable and productive citizens, people who one would be proud to call Americans. No group is free of miscreants, but, America is a better place for these immigrants who assimilated into our culture and called the United States their new home.
“Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 70, has lost her citizenship and will be removed from the United States for intentionally falsifying her United States citizenship documents after an in-depth investigation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
Making the announcement was acting United States Attorney Daniel L. Lemisch and HSI Detroit special agent Steve Francis. “Today’s court action clears the way for this defendant’s removal from the United States and should serve as an unequivocal message that the United States will never be a haven for those seeking to distance themselves from their past atrocities,” Francis said.
Far-left Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour – who had recently called for Muslims to wage a form of ‘Jihad’ against President Trump – has a long history of defending Odeh and has spoken with her at many events.
“Had Odeh revealed the truth about her criminal history, as she was required to by law, she would never have been granted an immigrant visa, admitted to the United States, allowed to live here for the last twenty-two years, or granted United States citizenship,” ICE has also noted in their statement.
