Muslim group awaits teen's return

By The Associated Press

A Muslim rights group says it is waiting to see if a U.S. teenager held in Kuwait will be allowed to fly back to the United States.

An attorney for the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Sunday that 19-year-old Gulet Mohamed's brother bought him a plane ticket home at the request of a Kuwaiti deportation official. CAIR attorney Gadeir Abbas says Mohamed is on a no-fly list and the group is waiting to see if the Alexandria, Va. teenager will be allowed to return home. Abbas says the group is considering legal action if Mohamed is not allowed to return.

Abbas says the flight is scheduled to arrive at Dulles International Airport about 6:45 a.m. Monday.

Those aged 18-24 are also adults and not "kids" or "teens", meaning they shouldn't be called those words. The title of this article should've been titled "Muslim group awaits young man's return" because he's a young man and not a "teen" so because of this, the article and it's title are ageist. Hopefully, the young man will arrive at the airport in northern Virginia against. Islamophobia, along with ageism, are types of discrimination.

I certainly smell a rat here.
let him stay in either Kuwait (to further his "studies"), or back to Somalia. After a short time, America will look like paradise to him.
I think his sorry butt should be banned from entering my country.
