FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) – An Arizona congressman is questioning why an Iraqi native charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a federal building hadn’t been deported despite his criminal history and being denied citizenship.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Thursday that Abdullatif Ali Aldosary’s previous arrests weren’t considered deportable offenses.

Agency spokesman Gillian Christensen says Aldosary was denied citizenship because he participated in an uprising against Iraqi government forces in Basra in 1991.

Republican Rep. Paul Gosar wrote to the agency Wednesday about Aldosary, who is in the country legally.

    ” An Arizona congressman is questioning why an Iraqi native charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a federal building hadn’t been deported despite his criminal history and being denied citizenship.”

    Bill Ayers ended up being a professor at the Univ. Illionis-Chicago. That should in a nutshell answer the congressman’s question in a roundabout way.
