Court: Ex-terror defendant facing deportation is US citizen

A one-time Maryland high school honors student who admitted aiding Muslim extremists overseas and helped the U.S. pursue terrorists after his 2011 arrest is a U.S. citizen, a federal appeals panel said Thursday as it erased a pending deportation order.

The ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan means 24-year-old Mohammad Hassan Khalid can continue his studies at a Maryland college.

His Philadelphia lawyer, Wayne Sachs, called the decision a “very satisfying victory for a well-deserving young man with a bright future.”
