Rasmea Odeh is a former terrorist. Odeh is a Palestinian who took part in a bombing that killed two Israeli students, according to reports. She then spent ten years in prison, but became a U.S. citizen. She was charged with lying on her immigration application.
She recently became a leader in the Women’s March movement. Now she’s being deported.
Heat Street reports:
Ex-Terrorist Who Led ‘Women’s March’ Will be Deported
A convicted Palestinian terrorist and a key figure of the recent Women’s March will be deported from the United States after accepting a plea bargain that allows her to escape a prison sentence.
Rasmea Odeh will be stripped of her U.S citizenship and forced to leave the country and return to Jordan after failing to disclose to immigration authorities that she had been imprisoned in Israel for committing two terror attacks.
As part of her plea bargain, however, Odeh won’t have to spend time in U.S prison or detention, according to a statement on Thursday by the Rasmea Defense Committee.
The terrorist-turned-activist rose to prominence in the US following her involvement with the Women’s March and another recent high-profiel protest, “A Day Without A Woman”. In a letter in The Guardian that she co-authored with other activists, Odeh urged women worldwide to join in a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.”
Legal Insurrection has more:
Rasmea Odeh, whose case we have been covering for over two years, has agreed to a plea deal according to her defense committee. That deal will avoid prison for her immigration fraud, but she will leave the country and surrender her citizenship.
The Rasmea Defense Committee issued as statement on the deal, full of the types of lies Rasmea and her supporters have been telling for years about her underlying terrorist bombing of the SuperSol supermarket that killed Edward Joffe and Leon Kanner.
She won’t be leading any more Women’s Marches in the U.S. any time soon.
