Board of Immigration Appeals grants new stay for Syed Jamal

Board of Immigration Appeals grants new stay for Syed Jamal

A Kansas father fighting efforts by the U.S.to deport him to Bangladesh is being returned from Honolulu to the Kansas City area.

His wife and other two children rushed out but even before they could say goodbye, he was led away in handcuffs.

Jamal's attorneys immediately filed an appeal with the Board of Immigration Appeals in Virginia, but it's not clear whether Jamal remains in the country.

Immigration officials arrested Syed Jamal last month after his visa had become invalid, according to his attorney.

Jamal is now detained in the El Paso Detention Facility, where he will remain until a decision on his motion is made. "I understand his attorneys are appealing the decision".

Sharma-Crawford said in a Facebook post "He is coming home". Associated Press reported the Congressman said he is planning to introduce legislation that could deal with cases like that of Jamal. It said: "I miss my dad".

Syed Ahmed Jamal came to the United States in 1987 to attend Kansas University on a student visa and went on to obtain graduate degrees in molecular biosciences and pharmaceutical engineering. At 11:45am CST we received the decision of the Immigration Court denying his motions and dissolving the stay.


His failure to depart triggered an automatic deportation order. But immigration authorities could deport him at any time.

The chemist and adjunct professor has lived in the USA for more than 30 years. That court issued a stay while Jamal was on the plane.

Representative Emanuel Cleaver, a Democrat to whom Jamal's supporters appealed for help, said the case was an example of the country's "broken and unfair immigration system".

"Under either scenario, the rule of law prevails", she adds.

Today a judge overturned the stay of removal for Syed Jamal.

President Donald Trump has advocated a sweeping overhaul of the immigration system emphasising a priority on removing immigrants who commit crimes in the US. Hundreds of supporters of Jamal and his family which includes 3 children who are citizens, have rallied behind the Kansas chemist who was offloaded at the refueling stopover in Hawaii. "It sends a false message that immigrants are criminals and detrimental to America", says Ms Sharma-Crawford.

According to reporting partner KMBC, Syed Ahmed Jamal, the Lawrence, KS resident detained on January 24 by immigration agents, will be deported.
