Palestinian terrorist Rasmieh Odeh is about to be deported to Jordan. U.S. District Judge Gershwin A. Drain formalized terms of a plea agreement during a sentencing hearing Thursday afternoon in Detroit.
It was not immediately clear when Odeh, a Chicago-based Palestinian activist, will leave the United States, but there are not expected to be problems getting her to go to Jordan, where she remains a citizen. It is up to Immigration and Customs Enforcement to arrange her departure.
Odeh was convicted of naturalization fraud in 2014, but an appeal led to a new trial date last May. She opted to plead guilty in March and agree to deportation in exchange for a promise of no jail time. She was fined $1,000.
