Immigration police arrest a chemist who has been living in the US for more than 30 years.

55-year-old Syed Ahmed Jamal was in the courtyard of his house in Lawrence, Kansas, getting ready to take his daughter to school when Immigration and Customs Control (ICE) agents handcuffed him and took him to prison.

They did not even allow his wife Angela Zainaub Chowdhury to hug him goodbye, writes Huffington Post.

Detention of Jamal has once again demonstrated that the new administration is targeting not only illegal immigrants who have committed crimes, but also those who have lived in the United States for decades without completely having any problems with the law.

Jamal came to the US in 1987 from Bangladesh on a F1 student visa and received a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Kansas. He received an H-1B work visa, found work at the Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, and then issued a student visa again, deciding to defend his PhD thesis.

Then in 2011, he was given a voluntary departure order. He did not leave the country within the allotted time, which gave the right to the Department of Homeland Security to begin the process of deportation. However, during the administration of Barack Obama there was an order giving this department the right to set priorities for the deportation of persons at its discretion, and the Department decided to grant Jamal temporary work permit. Since then, he has worked as a chemistry instructor at Kansas City Park University, and also conducted laboratory tests at local hospitals.

The temporary work permit for Jamal is still valid, ICE decided to ignore it.

According to the lawyer of the scientist Jeffrey Bennett, the US law provides the basis for allowing Jamal to stay in the country.

Jamal has three children who are US citizens. And his wife, a living organ donor, cannot provide for the family financially.

“My little brother cries every night, my sister cannot concentrate at school, and I cannot sleep at night. My mother is injured and since she is an organ donor she only has one kidney, so stress is very dangerous for her. She could die if he is deported. If my father is deported, my brother and sister and I may never see him again, "wrote Jamal Tasin's 14-year-old son in a letter in support of his father, in which the child asked not to be deported.

Jamal, who is a member of the Bihari ethnic minority, could be in serious danger if he returns to Bangladesh.

Bennett said that he had filed a request to cancel the deportation of his client, based on the deep roots of Jamal in Lawrence, the presence of his children, US citizens and the absence of a criminal history. He is also investigating whether a man could be in danger after returning to Bangladesh, and whether this data can be used in the petition.
