Rasmieh Yousef OdehA pro-immigration enforcement watchdog was pleased to learn that a Palestinian terrorist who defrauded the U.S. government is being deported.

Rasmieh Yousef Odef was convicted of detonating a bomb in a Jerusalem grocery store in 1969, killing two Israelis and wounding nine other shoppers. A second bomb planted by Odef exploded outside the British consulate days later but no one was killed.

Ira Mehlman of the Federation for American Immigration Reform is familiar with Odef, a Popular Front terrorist who went to live in Jordan after she was freed by Israel during a prisoner exchange in 1979.

Odef (pictured above) eventually planned to come to the United States "and somehow was able to slip through the net," Mehlman says of the terrorist. "She was able to become a citizen in spite of the fact that she was a convicted terrorist."

Odef gained national attention as a co-organizer of the left-wing Women's March, which likely brought attention to her falsified U.S. citizenship documents that allowed her to come here in 1994.

"Today’s court action," said a spokesman for Immigration and Customs Enforcement after the recent hearing, "clears the way for this defendant’s removal from the United States and should serve as an unequivocal message that the U.S. will never be a haven for those seeking to distance themselves from their past atrocities."

ICE and Homeland Security launched a joint investigation of Odef, learning that she had falsified documents by failing to admit her conviction. 

The terrorist is now headed back to Jordan.
