A non-U.S. citizen Muslim man who was allowed to remain in an American prison for 10 years under Bush and Obama has finally been deported to his homeland of Ethiopia, per a report in 100% Fed Up.
Khalid Adem, 41, was taken into custody a decade ago for using scissors to mutilate the genitals of his 2 year-old daughter.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a religious tradition in many Muslim cultures. It involves the removal of the clitoris, and often the of the labia. In some cases, the child’s legs are tied from ankle to waist while scar tissue seals up the vagina. A small orifice is left for urination. The cutting is often with a razor, a knife, or a pair of scissors.
Horribly, anesthesia is rarely used.
Female genital mutilation is a federal offense. Never a U.S. citizen, Adem was living in Gwinnett County, Georgia in 2006 when he was arrested for aggravated battery and cruelty to children.
