SNIPPET: "Shanti was arrested by u.s. Customs and Border Protection in Blaine, Wash. ..."
SNIPPET: "Both were from Morocco. It's unclear why Shanti would need to jump the border so often. But a LinkedIn account listed in Shanti's name lists a string of jobs in Canada, Dubai, and Jordan, so it may have been work-related."

SNIPPET: “Mr. Shanti, a Canadian citizen who was born in Jordan, was arrested last Friday at the Pacific Highway crossing south of Vancouver. He was there to apply for a NEXUS pass, which allows cardholders to more quickly cross into the U.S.”
SNIPPET: “Mr. Schreiber couldnt say if Mr. Shanti was a Canadian citizen at the time of the killing. It was also unclear how many times he had entered the U.S. since 1983, or why he wasnt red-flagged earlier.”

SNIPPET: “Allegedly fled country
In December 1983, an international student from Syria was killed when he was shot twice in the head, according to an Oklahoma court affidavit obtained by CBC News.
The affidavit said a witness told authorities he sold a gun to Shanti, who was a student from Jordan.
The shooting victim’s chequebook and credit cards turned up in Shanti’s apartment and police found blood stains in his car, the affidavit said.
Shanti was arrested but then allegedly fled to Jordan before his trial.”
“...It was also unclear how many times he had entered the U.S. since 1983, or why he wasnt red-flagged earlier.
Because TSA is too busy, looking in the diapers of dying 95-year old women.
