    A 23-year-old Egyptian aviation student in California has agreed to self-deportation the U.S. after a Facebook post threatening Donald Trump was turned over to the FBI, leading to a Secret Service investigation of the student, and ultimately his detention by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE).


    On February 3, Emadeldin Elsayed posted an article about Trump on Facebook along with the comment: “I literally don’t mind taking a lifetime sentence in jail for killing this guy, I would actually be doing the whole world a favor.” The Secret Service interviewed Elsayed the following day, according to his lawyer. Looks like someone spends a lot of time monitoring posts on Facebook for freedom.

    A week after the Secret Service investigated his comments, Elsayed was expelled from flight school, which made him ineligible to continue studying in the country on a visa, even though prosecutors decided not to charge him with anything.

    An immigration judge granted Elsayed voluntary departure, a form of repatriation that spares him a formal deportation but returns him to Egypt escorted by federal agents.


    Elsayed’s lawyer stated he doubted the government considered Elsayed an actual threat, as he was flying planes and taking classes at Universal Air Academy for more than a week after he was first interviewed.

    So… a stupid Facebook post, no criminal charges, not even pulling the kid off the flight line for a week, but, whatever, deport him anyway. Why, it’s almost as if the U.S. government is using the immigration system as a punishment tool against people that basically piss them off.


    BONUS: Elsayed will no doubt return to Egypt telling everyone there how well he was treated in the land of the free, which will help to assure any would-be radicals their dark images of America are wrong.

    BONUS BONUS: What was Elsayed upset about anyway? A perfect circle — Trump’s proposal to bar Muslims from entering the United States!

      So the crime was posting it on Facebook or because he was a dangerous Muslim? If the Secret Service investigated every threat against Obama, they would have to lock up half of Georgia and Alabama.

      Bauer, the Democrats have angered so many loyal “Southern” types bychoosing Obama it may backfire when they ask them to vote for a white woman. It seems that the Republicans will not allow Trump to carry their banner. Trump promised not to run as an independent but he might suggest from the sidelines that disgruntled types in both parties could do a “write in”. Could a right in candidate win the general election? Man, the parties would have to have more than hanging chads to nullify that possibility.

      “I literally don’t mind taking a lifetime sentence in jail for killing this guy, I would actually be doing the whole world a favor.”

      He should have called the GOP hotline first. I’m sure they would have accommodated him. Unfortunately, this guy was under the impression the 1st Amendment is still in force in this country, regardless if you are here on a visa. Not.
      I wonder who makes these decisions. There must be a Bureau of Vindictiveness.

      “Looks like someone spends a lot of time monitoring posts on Facebook for freedom.”

      Welcome to 1984 circa 2016. I’m positive they’re monitoring your site as well Peter. After all.. well, you know… cause whistleblowing. They never forget when someone kicks THEIR ass.

      In that regard..to whoever is monitoring here…

      fuck you. fuck your mother. fuck your sister. and fuck the USG.

      btw.. fuck you.

      Oh..did I mention.. fuck you? No? Ok…fuck you.

      In closing.. fuck you again.

      So verbal threats against a sniveling guy who threatens to kill half the world’s population will result in criminal prosecution. Cruz threatens to attack The Donald,

      “It’s not easy to tick me off. I don’t get angry often, but you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that’ll do it every time,” Cruz said.

      but he won’t lose sleep waiting for the Secret Service to come knocking at his door and deport him back to Canada.

      Wait….wait … I’ve been wondering about this inconvenient truth. Ummmm… does anyone else see this 800lb gorilla in the election room? Maybe I’m missing something here. I mean…even Trump sees it. WTF is going on here? Frankly, I can’t stand this schmuck, so I haven’t been following any of his campaign nor really know the story here, but if this is true… doesn’t that mean he’s INELIGIBLE?? umm..cause:
      Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution clause 5:
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural-born-citizen_clause
      Someone PLEASE clue me in here cause my cognitive dissonance alarm is going full blast.

      bartender..quick.. a shot of 150prf Canadian Whiskey… cause I need a drink of what the Cruz staff are drinking…cause.. I need to be just as delusional right now. and then two bottles of NaturalBornCitizen craft beer. Just for shits and giggles…know what I mean?

      itch,

      Trump wants us to pay attention to this crap so we don’t pay attention to the important issues like his tax returns.
