Kansas man fighting deportation granted temporary stay in Hawaii

Taseen Jamal said ICE agents wouldn't let him his mother or his siblings say goodbye to their father

Associated Press reported the Congressman said he is planning to introduce legislation that could deal with cases like that of Jamal.

Jamal was granted a temporary stay in his case last week after local lawmakers got involved in his case. Sharma-Crawford said he was taken off the flight when it stopped to refuel in Honolulu.

The Democrat representative flew to Texas Saturday with Jamal's attorney to check on his well-being.

The husband and father of three has been in the USA for 30 years, most recently working as a chemistry professor at Park University.

From his small hands, the picture traveled more than 900 miles to Syed Jamal in a detention center outside El Paso, Texas. Jamal's attorneys immediately filed a new motion for stay with the Board of Immigration Appeals in Virginia.

The chemist and adjunct professor has lived in the USA for more than 30 years. He was ordered deported in 2011 but had been allowed to stay in the US and check in regularly with immigration authorities.

His attorney says there are two legal issues which provide the court a way forward.

"The judge can agree that the underlying procedural defects undercut the validity of the order and he can also ensure that the protections given to those with a fear of return are honoured", says Ms Sharma-Crawford.

The actor was also known for his role on The Wire , where he played Norman Wilson, the mayor's aide. He once said about the City, "I learned how to act at Yale but learned how to be an actor in NYC".

A Kansas professor whose deportation back to Bangladesh garnered national attention was given a midair, reprieve after a judge granted him another temporary stay.

President Donald Trump has advocated a sweeping overhaul of the immigration system emphasising a priority on removing immigrants who commit crimes in the US. But in the recent months, many undocumented immigrants without any criminal record have also been picked for deportation.

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

All three of Mr Jamal's children - seven, 12 and 14 - are United States citizens and his wife has a medical condition that limits her mobility, making him the sole provider for the family. An online fundraising campaign has raised nearly $70,000 and an online petition has gathered almost 100,000 signatures. We don't know when ICE received the decision of the Court.

His arrest and possible deportation sparked protests and criticism, including from Missouri Rep. Emanuel Cleaver.

Cleaver says supporting this family is the right thing to do.

"We need to fix these laws that criminalize hard-working, contributing members of society like Mr. Syed Jamal and that's what I plan to push for in Congress".
