New York: Court rules convicted Muslim immigrant terrorist is citizen, erases deportation order

In July, an Obama-appointed judge ruled a Pakistani Muslim terrorist can’t lose U.S. citizenship. Now this.

Rather than refer to this jihadi as a convicted terrorist, the AP, WAPO  and others are referring to him as an “ex-terror defendant.” He plead guilty and was sentenced to five years prison.

A one-time Maryland high school honors student who admitted aiding Muslim extremists overseas and helped the U.S. pursue terrorists after his 2011 arrest is a U.S. citizen, a federal appeals panel said Thursday as it erased a pending deportation order.

The ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan means 24-year-old Mohammad Hassan Khalid can continue his studies at a Maryland college.

His Philadelphia lawyer, Wayne Sachs, called the decision a “very satisfying victory for a well-deserving young man with a bright future.”

He said the three-judge appeals panel, unlike four earlier courts, “properly focused on the law rather than the petitioner’s ‘notoriety.’”

The U.S. government did not immediately say if it planned to appeal.

Circuit Judge Dennis Jacobs wrote that he cannot congratulate Khalid, given that he “plotted sneaking violence against Americans.”

“He cooperated with the authorities only when, having been caught, he found himself needing another kind of refuge,” Jacobs said.

Circuit Judge Christopher F. Droney, who wrote the main opinion, explained that Khalid was entitled to citizenship because he was under age 18 when his father gained citizenship.

In a footnote, the 2nd Circuit noted that the government indicated that it had no information that Khalid presents a continuing threat to the United States.

The appeals court also noted that Khalid maintained that he would be tortured if removed to Pakistan because of his cooperation in federal terrorism investigations. The Department of Homeland Security had sought to remove him to the United Arab Emirates or Pakistan.

Khalid entered the United States in 2007 with his family. He was born in the United Arab Emirates, but was a Pakistani citizen because his parents were Pakistani.

Khalid was 17 when he was arrested in 2011 after winning a full scholarship to prestigious Johns Hopkins University. Authorities said he had been engaging in radical Islamist chat rooms from his family’s small apartment near Baltimore since he was 15.

In 2012, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, admitting that he had agreed in his secret online life to raise money and recruit terrorists for jihad.

In 2014, he was sentenced to five years in prison. Prosecutors said he deserved leniency from a potential 15-year term because he had helped U.S. authorities pursue various al-Qaida offshoots after his arrest.

Khalid, who completed his sentence in 2015, is currently attending college in Maryland, studying cybersecurity, among other things.

His lawyer said Khalid is devoted to preventing young people from going down the path had had taken as a teenager.

He may have been entitled to citizenship prior to being a convicted terrorist, but afterward, Americans are entitled to being rid of him.

What better a place than Pakistan for him to spend the rest of his life preventing young Muslims from joining the jihad?

  1. A typical pro-MUZZRAT ruling from a typical pro-MUZZRAT, Obama-appointed judge!!!! He’s been set free to “studying cybersecurity, among other things.” Ahemm…. So now he wants to HELP us become more “cyber-secure”???? Ahemm…. yeah, sure…. just like “clock-boy” didn’t really intend to create a replica of a “clock BOMB”!!!!! Thank GOD for President Trump’s attempt to replace these pro-MUZZTURD judges!!! WE HAVE MET THE ENEMY AND HE IS US!!!!!

  2. I’m more afraid of the lawyer and judge than of this terrorist. We know what he wants to do, but what depths can these other two sink to? All three need to be removed as threats to America.

    • There us the possibility that this young man has learned from his horrible mistake. We’ll just have to wait and see about him. But his lawyer and the judge are totally free to continue such rulings.

    • #JS. Amazing, isn’t it how some bloggers here can’t see past the “poor widdle me” look on this SCUMBAG’S face!!! Didn’t they read the article???….”He cooperated with the authorities only when, having been caught, he found himself needing another kind of refuge,” [Judge] Jacobs said. Some ppl never learn!!!!!

  3. Hopefully the next time this raghead gets caught it won’t be catch and release, it will be catch and body bag! The judge and lawyer are those creepy little creeps that they make jokes about, Like what’s a thousand lawyers at the bottom of the ocean; A good start!!

  4. 47:4 Behead and slaughter the unbelievers; take others captive
    “When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then, when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds; then set them free, either by grace or ransom, till the war lays down its loads. So it shall be; and if Allah had willed, He would have avenged Himself upon them; but that He may try some of you by means of others. And those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will not send their works astray.”

    Islam is the most dangerous thing that the world has ever faced, Stalin and Hitler were insignificant compared to the engulfing and mendacious tentacles of Islam

    Islamic culture is based on shame and honor, and a high illiteracy rate to impede progress. Their greatness will come when all vestiges of advanced societies are destroyed.

  5. Traitor IslamObama is still f-ing with with America.
    • His strategy to turn us into a Islamic third world country is still on the march with the help of the anti-America left and young heads full of mush.

    •••• Congress peeps are counting on us to say nothing and do nothing coz we DO NOTHING ••••
    • If you are happy with this, you’ll continue to be happy till the end.
    • If you are not happy…WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

    • Don’t forget family and friends…keep them informed even if they don’t want to hear it.
    • If you won’t stand up for your country, your freedoms, your loved ones and friends, who will?
    Midnight’s not creeping, it’s at a gallop…

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
