Questions Arise About How Terror
Suspect Was Allowed to Live in AZ

CBS News
An Arizona congressman is asking federal officials why the man suspected of detonating a bomb outside the Arizona Social Security Administration office in Casa Grande was allowed to live in Arizona despite being classified a person who had engaged in "terrorism-related activity."

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security and the Citizenship and Immigration Services on Wednesday with specific questions about the status of 47-year-old Abdullatif Ali Aldosary.

Aldosary on Tuesday was ordered held in jail pending a preliminary hearing. Investigators said instructions on how to construct an explosive device, bomb-making materials and chemicals were found in his Coolidge home after a small explosion outside the building in downtown Casa Grande on Friday morning.

Aldosary had approached Gosar's office with a request for a "green card" and in November 2011, Gosar forwarded that request to immigration officials.

Gosar said DHS responded by saying Aldosary was not eligible for a permanent change to citizenship "pursuant to the terrorism-related grounds of inadmissibility, and that "individuals who engage in terrorism-related activity … are barred from receiving various immigration benefits."

DHS did not elaborate on what the activity was. Gosar wrote that to be barred from permanent status, under federal law the immigrant must have engaged in activity "indicating an intention to cause death or serious bodily injury, a terrorist activity; to prepare or plan a terrorist activity; to gather information on potential targets for terrorist activity" or belong to "a terrorist organization" among other actions.

When CBS5 reached out to DHS, Immigration & Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Amber Cargile responded, "Mr. Aldosary has an adjustment of status petition currently pending with U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services after a previous denial of legal permanent resident status due to his participation in an uprising against Iraqi government forces in Basra in March 1991, during the Gulf War."

In light of the Casa Grande bombing, Gosar questioned why Aldosary was not detained and processed for deportation in November 2011, after it was determined he had engaged in terrorism-related activity.

Gosar also asked what efforts were made to track and monitor "a known terrorist."

The Nov. 30 bombing happened about a block away from Gosar's office.
