CLEVELAND — An Ohio mosque leader may be leaving the country earlier than expected.
NewsChannel5 learned that Imam Fawaz Damra’s appeal was dropped in the Court of Appeals.
That means his citizenship remains revoked and the deportation process could begin soon. A judge revoked his citizenship in September 2004.
A jury convicted Damra last year for lying about connections to terrorist organizations on his application for U.S. Citizenship….
Damra is the leader of Ohio’s largest mosque, the Islamic Center of Cleveland, in Parma.
Why did they accept him as their leader? Why didn’t they reject him because of his terrorist ties?
