An Egyptian national has been deported after hurling death threats at GOP front runner Donald Trump. Emad El-Din Ali Mohamed Nasr El Sayed was in the United States under the authorization of a student visa before getting arrested on February 12. The website Egyptian Streets first broke the story.
El Sayed posted his death threats on Facebook after feeling disgruntled by Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric. “I am willing to kill Donald Trump and serve a life sentence,” he wrote. “[T]he whole world would thank me for doing that.”
U.S. authorities have decided to forego formal charges and instead strip the Muslim student of his student visa. El Sayed’s legal team has argued that the authorities opted for deportation because the criminal case was not strong enough. “Interestingly, authorities apparently based the revocation of his visa not on the threats, but on evidence that he had recently ended his enrollment at Universal Air Academy, a flight school in Los Angeles that he was attending,” reports BizPac Review.”Hani Bushra, one of El Sayed’s attorneys, told Egyptian Streets that the flight school was pressured to terminate El Sayed’s enrollment so that he could be deported. Bushra claimed authorities did so because the criminal case wasn’t strong enough.”
El Sayed’s attorneys have one more shot at convincing the courts not to deport their client. They will make their final pleas at a hearing scheduled for March 4. In anticipation of a fight, Bushra has already begun to accuse the courts of mishandling his client’s case. “It is unfortunate that the immigration judge did not see that Emad’s placement in removal proceedings came after law enforcement failed to file and sustain criminal charges against Emad, and therefore resorted to punishing him in different way,” the attorney stated.
“I am willing to kill Donald Trump and serve a life sentence. T]he whole world would thank me for doing that.”

Bushra’s efforts may be in vain, however. The ruling of an immigration judge rarely gets overturned. Moreover, U.S. authorities clearly have reason to believe that El Sayed is a threat to U.S. citizens, namely Donald J. Trump.
At least indirectly, Trump may have just fulfilled his first campaign promise, or perhaps some variation of the vow to keep out violent Muslims. Thanks to Trump, Emad El-Din Ali Mohamed Nasr El Sayed is getting shipped back to Egypt.
