Youssef Megahed to be released from immigration detention
Youssef Megahed is about to be released from a Miami-area immigration detention facility.
A Miami immigration judge has signed an order to release the former University of South Florida student, who was acquitted of explosives charges earlier this year.
That's because of an agreement today between immigration officials and Megahed's attorney.
Earlier today, immigration judge Kenneth Hurewitz threw out Megahed's deportation case.
WMNF spoke this afternoon with Youssefâs immigration attorney, Charles Kuck. ââ¦Thereâs now no bar to him being naturalized.â
Youssef Megahedâs father, Samir Megahed, says his whole family is excited. âI am proud to be an American citizen.âcomments powered by Disqus
