Onetime Arizona Graduate Student Deported

A former University of Arizona graduate student, in federal custody since June, has been deported without charges to his native Saudi Arabia. Muhammad Al-Qudhai’een, a Saudi citizen and father of five, had been held in a federal prison in Virginia. Al-Qudhai’een’s wife, friends and Islamic leaders had been unable to glean information about his detention, except that he was being held as a material witness. Federal officials have still not disclosed specifically why Al-Qudhai’een was detained. Deedra Abboud, of the Council on American Islamic Relations in Phoenix, said she was told Al-Qudhai’een had been recently deported without charges. He called a friend in Tucson after arriving in Saudi Arabia, Abboud told Thursday’s edition of the Arizona Daily Star. Federal immigration officials did not immediately return calls from The Associated Press on Thursday. Full Story
