Missouri: Muslim diversity visa recipient sent $1M to terrorist in Jordan

Mubarak Ahmed Hamed was convicted in 2010 of sending $1 million from a nonprofit to a terrorist in Jordan, who redirected the funds into Iraq in the years before the U.S. invasion to depose its leader Saddam Hussein. Hamed began a four-year, 10-month prison term in 2012. Justice Department officials asked a federal judge on Wednesday to revoke his legal status in a denaturalization complaint.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions used the case to push for changes to immigration law.
