Northeast man admits ties to terror group

A Castor Gardens resident has admitted that he lied on immigration forms about his ties to a pro-Islamic, anti-Western terrorist group in his native Afghanistan and will be deported, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Hayatullah Dawari, 62, pleaded guilty on Friday to two counts of immigration fraud and was sentenced to two years in federal prison. U.S. District Judge Stewart Dalzell immediately suspended Dawari’s sentence and ordered him to relinquish his status as a legal permanent resident of the U.S. He will be banned from ever returning to the country.
