One of the leaders of the Women’s March has been deported. Rasmea Odeh is a convicted terrorist who lied on her application to enter the U.S. and she has been shipped away. The far left movement is very angry.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Convicted Terrorist Deported, Upsetting Women’s March Organizers
The organizers of the left-wing Women’s March are upset after American authorities deported a convicted terrorist to Jordan.
Rasmea Odeh was convicted in 1970 of two bombings in Jerusalem, the Associated Press reports. One of the bombings killed two men at a supermarket. Odeh pled guilty to the charges; although, she has since made unproven claims that she was tortured into confessing.
Odeh was sentenced to life in prison, but in 1979, was released during a prisoner swap with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
In 1994, Odeh applied for a U.S. visa without mentioning her criminal convictions as was mandated. When she applied for citizenship in 2004, she again failed to mention her prior convictions.
In 2014, Odeh was convicted of lying, but the conviction was overturned. Instead of having a second trial, Odeh made a deal with U.S. officilas to plead guilty to misleading American immigration officials. Under the deal, she wouldn’t go to prison, but would lose her American citizenship and be deported.
U.S. District Judge Gershwin Drain, in 2015, attempted to excuse Odeh’s actions.
“Technically she was a terrorist,” Drain said. “But looking at Ms. Odeh’s recent history, I’m convinced she’s really been involved in a lot of good works.”

Maybe they should choose their leaders more carefully.
