Arrested 35 Times, Illegal Immigrant Sofyan Eldani Still Not Deported
In Alabama, federal authorities said they have tried to deport Sofyan Eldani, a Palestinian man, who has been arrested 35 times in 12 years, but several countries have refused to take him.
In addition, news reports claim that because Eldani says he's from Palestine, the U.S. government cannot send him there -- because the country isn't officially recognized. Thus, you can't send a man to a place that doesn't exist.
Eldani's arrests include: assault, fraudulent checks, criminal mischief, resisting arrests, reckless endangerment, shoplifting, burglary, drug possession, failure to appear, probation violation, possession of a drug paraphernalia and DUI.
Last week, Eldani was arrested by Hueytown, Alabama police after he was found during a traffic stop to be in possession of crack cocaine.
