    KANSAS CITY, Mo. --After more 30 years in the United States Park University professor detained by ICE is set to be deported to his home country of Bangladesh, according to a Facebook page called Free Syed Ahmed Jamal. "We just got word that the judge ruled against us and they have taken him out of El Paso and probably to the plane," the post said. "His legal counsel is trying to get the appeal filed before the plane takes off. Please pray for due process." Syed Jamal, from Bangladesh, has been in the United States for more than 30 years....

    The detention of a Kansas father of three who has lived in the U.S. for three decades highlights what experts say is the extraordinarily complicated nature of immigration law — and how much can change from one administration to the next. Immigration experts said the path towards citizenship can easily get derailed by what appear to be minor infractions, which may have contributed to the seemingly out-of-the blue detention of Syed Ahmed Jamal last month. Jamal, who is from Bangladesh, was about to take his daughter to school on Jan. 24 when U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials showed...

    New Delhi, India - Diplomatic talks between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu are set to begin on Monday during the latter's first official trip to India. Modi accorded Netanyahu a warm welcome when he arrived on Sunday and vowed to "further cement the close friendship" between Israel and India. The highly publicised visit comes after New Delhi voted against the United States decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel at the UN General Assembly last month. But despite India's record in abstaining or voting against Israel on the international level, Netanyahu's visit...

    Through a dogged campaign to build toilets and educate Bangladeshis about the dangers of open defecation, the densely populated South Asian nation has managed to reduce the number of people who defecate in the open to just 1 percent of the 166 million population, according to the government — down from 42 percent in 2003.

    Israel has protested to the government of India over the Delhi government's support of the recent motion at the United Nations General Assembly calling for the cancellation of United States President Donald Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Maariv reported. The protest comes two weeks ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's reciprocal visit to India after the visit of his counterpart Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, this past summer.

    Before Akayed Ullah returned home to New York from his native Bangladesh, and tried to blow himself up with a pipe bomb in a crowded Manhattan subway station, he had one last thing to do — an all-night bus ride by himself to help Rohingya refugees. After visiting relatives here in the capital city, Dhaka, he traveled across the country, slept in a mosque and under a tree, and passed out a few hundred dollars of medicine in the crowded refugee camps. “When he left, he seemed happy,” said his mother-in-law, Mahfuza Akhter. “But when he returned, he was so...

    Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi Muslim living in Brooklyn, really hated Christmas. He hated Christmas so much that he used Christmas tree lights (along with a battery and some wire) as a trigger for a pipe bomb. He filled the pipe bomb with screws so that when it went off, metal shrapnel would tear bloody holes through morning commuters in Manhattan. Wearing a hooded jacket and a backpack to cover the pipe bomb strapped to his body, Ullah got on the F Train at the 18th Avenue elevated subway station off Little Bangladesh. Like the Duke Ellington song says, he switched...

    Don't read too much into the fact that Akayed Ullah, the suspect in Monday's New York terrorist attack, is a Bangladeshi immigrant to the United States. While Bangladesh is a predominantly Muslim nation, it is no hotbed of terrorism and shouldn't be added to Trump's travel ban list. Of course, some aligned with the alt-right are jumping on Ullah's citizenship as further evidence of America's looming infection by Muslim extremism. Take John Cardillo...

    Twenty seven-year-old Akayed Ullah, who attempted to suicide bomb (I say attempted because he survived after injuring himself and four other people) the New York City subway system during rush hour Monday morning, was an immigrant from Bangladesh. He came to the United States in 2011 through family chain migration. “DHS can confirm that the suspect was admitted to the United States after presenting a passport displaying an F43 family immigrant visa in 2011. The suspect is a Lawful Permanent Resident from Bangladesh who benefited from extended family chain migration," Homeland Security Press Secretary Tyler Houlton confirmed. During the daily...

    The terror suspect who allegedly attempted to detonate a suicide-bomb in New York came to the United States from Bangladesh as a “chain migration” relative of an individual who had immigrated earlier into the United States. In October, President Donald Trump called for an end to this “chain migration” process in his immigration principles. On Monday 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a Bangladesh national, injured three individuals when he allegedly tried to detonate a suicide bomb in New York City in a planned terrorist attack.
