MINNEAPOLIS — A Somali-born Canadian citizen who admitted he attended Al-Qaida training camps in Afghanistan and lectures by Osama bin Laden is out of federal prison and has been deported to Canada.
US Immigration and Customs Enforcement said 37-year-old Mohammed Abdullah Warsame was released from a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, on Friday morning and immediately turned over to ICE.
ICE officials released him to the Canadian Border Service Agency.
Warsame pleaded guilty in May 2009 to conspiracy to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization. He agreed to be deported to Canada after his sentence as part of a plea deal in federal court in Minnesota.
ICE director John Morton says there is no place in the US for anyone who advocates violence by associating with terrorists.
