Virginia: Judge overrules USCIS, orders Muslim who worked for convicted terror financier be naturalized

via Judge overrules immigration authorities, orders Va. Muslim be naturalized – The Washington Post.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A nearly five-year legal saga will conclude Thursday for Falls Church resident Jamal Abusamhadaneh when he takes the oath of citizenship at a federal courthouse, after a federal judge ruled that immigration authorities wrongly drew sinister conclusions about aspects of his Muslim faith.

Abusamhadaneh’s naturalization follows last month’s unusual ruling that overturned the denial of his application by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

USCIS had denied the application and expressed concerns about Abusamhadaneh’s association with a prominent Virginia mosque and a purported link to the Muslim Brotherhood.

U.S. District Judge James Cacheris, who heard three days of evidence at trial earlier this year and issued an unusually detailed 90-page ruling, will personally administer the oath Thursday. He said USCIS’ concerns on all counts were either unfounded or overblown.

“Mr. Abusamhadaneh is a person of good moral character and meets the requirement for naturalization,” Cacheris wrote.

USCIS, meanwhile, had an FBI report that linked Abusamhadaneh to the Brotherhood. At trial, it was revealed that the source of the FBI report was Abdurahman Alamoudi, who was Abusamhadaneh’s boss for several years at the American Muslim Council. Alamoudi, a prominent U.S. Muslim activist, is currently serving a prison sentence for participating in a Libyan plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah.

Alamoudi testified that, in his view, Dar al-Hijrah is linked with the Muslim Brotherhood and that the Muslim American Society — which organized community events in which Abusamhadaneh and his family participated — is essentially the U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. But Alamoudi also testified that the FBI reports did not accurately reflect what he told the bureau agents about Abusamhadaneh, and that there is a lot of confusion in the Muslim community about whether Muslim American Society is connected to the Brotherhood.

Cacheris found the purported links to the Muslim Brotherhood to be essentially nonexistent: “Mr. Abusamhadaneh credibly testified that he is not, and never has been, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood,” he wrote in the ruling. “Not here and not in Jordan. Nor has he ever been associated with the Muslim Brotherhood in any formal way.”

The incredible and invisible Muslim Brotherhood. No one in the Obama administration can see them or any links to them. Or the danger.

    “Mr. Abusamhadaneh is a person of good moral character and meets the requirement for naturalization,” Cacheris wrote.”

    Maybe it’s time for Congress to take a good hard look at the requirements for naturalization then? As well as the definition of “good moral character” ?

    I mean, when I read that all I could say was “holy crap”. We know the definition of “holy crap”. It’s pretty plain.

    But then I thought the definition of “good moral character” was well known and pretty plain too.

  2. This is but one of the many ways the Obama administration is enabling Islamist to infiltrate our society, and we will soon pay the price.

  3. I assume that the qualifier “in any formal way” is intentional. If so, then it suggests that he did have ties to the MB but just not “formally” whatever that means. In any event, it could create precedence that “informal” associations are permissible and not grounds for disqualification. Not good.

  4. My first thought was that this judge was a leftist activist judge so out of curiosity I did some research.

    I found out that the judge was appointed by a conservative president and that the judge was not very active in politics or organizations. But I also found out he is ELDERLY.

    I believe the judge is an honorable man with no intent to harm America but that the Islamic terror front groups, who are masters at taquia, bamboozled him like so many seniors get scammed by criminals.

    A judge that old on the bench was no match for the Muslim Brotherhood.

    • Without knowing any add’l facts of the case, of course, I still think you probably hit the nail on the head vis-a-vis this totally out-of-touch judge – who DEFINITELY should no longer be on the bench (other than traffic court)!!

      But no matter what excuse we make for him, the damage has been
      done; and if this new citizen is in anyway connected to ANY questionable activity or organization in future, it will be on the addle-pated head of this easily duped judge. He probably doesn’t know islam from pisslam, shariah from my sherie amour – or MB from the Shriners who run around in fezes and assume arabic names!! He’s been hoodwinked, alright – and BIG TIME!!

  5. It really does not matter how old the judge or what party affiliation he is. He had no business interfering with immigration’s and the FBI’s procedures and criteria for determining if someone meets the criteria for immigration and naturalization. We do not need either organization if our courts are not going to allow them to do their jobs by respecting their decisions and the investigative background checks they have done. Now this frickin muslim is EVERYBODYS PROBLEM AND THREAT.What is this stinking raghead doing filing a lawsuit in our court for anyway. He believes sharia law trumps ours so why is he using OUR CONSTITUTION to get what he wants??!!He will be in the same courtroom in a matter of time when he has beat his wife or killed his daughter stating that “The constitution has no juridiction over the murders because sharia law trumps the constitution and he was commanded by sharia law to kill his daughter and beat his wife.”

    • Immediately after I just posted my other comment, I thought, “What in hell is this judge doing, overturning the decision of Immigration and the FBI – who’re already being totally infiltrated by muzzies of all stripes & varieties and, in this case, anyway, are to be commended for issuing a commonsense ruling based on mountains of evidence!!”

      Therefore, I totally concur with your straightforward and spot-on statement that Immigration & the FBI trump any and all federal judges when it comes to rulings regarding citizenship requirements!!

  6. If you think about it..Our courts would have not been tied up for 5 YEARS with this if he would have refused to hear it and allow the two depts background checks and investigative work decisions to stand for themselves.The muslim failed the criteria for immigrating here..PERIOD. NO EXCEPTIONS. If they would let these agencies do their job and their decisions and rules stand, the only cases that would end up in our courts to be contested would be the ones where those agencies DIDNT DO THEIR JOB and brought to the court by an AMERICAN CITIZEN WHO HAVE A RIGHT TO BE IN AMERICAN COURTROOMS! NO NONE CITIZENS SHOULD HAVE RIGHTS IN OUR COURTS. THEY ARE NOT AMERICANS
