Janet Napolitano: Injured Saudi Witness Is NOT Being Deported

Right wing blogs circulating false story like crazy
US News • Views: 21,981

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stated today that the idiotic right wing claim that the injured Saudi witness to the Boston bombings is being deported is yet another false rumor.

A Saudi student questioned in connection to the bombing of the Boston Marathon is not being deported, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a House panel Thursday.

“I am unaware of anyone who is being deported for national security concerns at all related to Boston. I don’t know where that rumor came from,” Napolitano said.

That rumor came from the right wing blogs, of course, who are being absolutely despicable in their “coverage.”

For one example out of many, here’s anti-Muslim hate group leader Pamela Geller at breitbart.com, ranting and raving and “demanding answers:” SAUDI NATIONAL DEPORTATION: AMERICAN PEOPLE MUST DEMAND THE FULL STORY.

More on this latest right wing fail: Saudi National Not a Suspect, Not a Person of Interest in Boston Bombings.

Boston - The Department of Homeland Security tells CNN that there has been some confusion and misreporting regarding two different Saudi nationals.

There is one Saudi national who is in a Boston hospital, and has been questioned by the FBI because he was at the marathon during the terrorist attack.

He is not a suspect, nor is he a person of interest. He was an individual at the marathon, and therefore, like so many individuals, has been questioned.

There is a second Saudi national from the Boston area who is in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody for being in violation of his visa. This ICE custody has nothing to do with the Boston Marathon, officials from the Department of Homeland Security said.

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
