Yassmin Abdel-Magied deported from USA

Bahahaha. 'Onya, Donald!!!

Yassmin Abdel-Magied says she is being deported from the US

Within three hours of arriving in the US, Australian author and activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied said she was on a plane "back" after being refused entry.

Ms Abdel-Magied had landed in Minneapolis ahead of speaking engagements in New York, but said that border agents decided to deport her just minutes after looking at her "case".

They’ve taken my phone, cancelled my visa and are deporting me," she said. She did not say where she was being sent back to.

"Will follow up on messages once I understand what’s going on."

Despite being on a plane out of the US, Ms Abdel-Magied said officials still had her passport and would not return it until she was in another country.

Roughly three hours since touch down in Minneapolis, I’m on a plane back," she tweeted.

"Well, guess that tightening of immigration laws business is working, despite my Australian passport. We’re taking off now. What a time."

Fairfax Media has contacted Ms Abdel-Magied for comment.

The former Queensland Young Australian of the Year was due to appear at two events for the Pen America World Voices Festival.

The first talk, titled The M Word: No Country For Young Muslim Women, was set to feature Ms Abdel-Magied and US author Amani Al-Khatahtbeh discussing the difficulties of being young Muslim women in Western countries.

The second event is a panel discussion about how to counter online hate and the women’s experience with it - a topic with which Ms Abdel-Magied is all too familiar.

Ms Abdel-Magied moved to London after her Anzac Day post, "Lest We Forget (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine ...)" led to a massive public backlash.

In November last year, in her first Australian television appearance since she moved overseas, she told The Project’s hosts the reaction was “surreal”.

I went from being, like, this young Queenslander of the Year and on all these kind of boards and councils and I was like the good Muslim girl, the darling. Next minute it's like everything exploded," she said.

"I'm now someone with nothing left to lose and that's kind of amazing. It means I can say what I want ... I think the nice version of saying it is no runs left to give."

Besides her social commentary and activism, Ms Abdel-Magied also made her acting debut in SBS digital series Homecoming Queens on Thursday night.

So far, she has been able to see the lighter side of her deportation situation.

"Funniest thing is that throughout this whole ordeal all I am thinking about is what a good story this would make," she tweeted.

"We all have ways of dealing with situations."

According to The New York Times, US border agents have a much broader authority to conduct searches than US police.

Border agents are legally allowed to search bags without a judge's prior approval, and are also allowed to seize and search digital devices.

Maybe she should be considering the difficulties for young Muslim women in Muslim countries - in the West their biggest problems are their families seeking to lock them into traditional ways - not anything to do with the society of the nation they are living in today.

People like this love to beat things up and twist them into something they are not - playing the victim - and thus avoiding laying the blame where it rightly belongs - with THEIR culture - not ours.

It seems the Pussy Pass and the Gypo Pass only travel so far and the West is starting to finally wake up... no more being pushed to the front of the line for QYWOTY etc because you're ethnic or a Kaffir or a gay woman or you were stupid enough to have your certified insane ex kill your kid .... gee - you might have to actually EARN your way in those areas and some others by achieving something of value for the nation/society....

That worm is turning mighty slowly and responding slowly to medication, though... let's hope the patient isn't fully dead before it is removed from the heart and lungs of the nation.  Cry

Australian author Yassmin Abdel-Magied says she has been deported from the US.

In a series of tweets, Ms Abdel-Magied said she was put back on a plane after arriving at Minneapolis airport ahead of an appearance at an April 18 event in New York called The M Word: No Country for Young Muslim Women.


The controversial activist, who moved from Australia to the UK in 2017, said US authorities cancelled her visa and took her passport and phone.

Ms Abdel-Magied was born in Sudan but said she was travelling on her Australian passport.

She said she has not been given the reason for her deportation......

Maybe she wanted to boost book sales in the US.

Do you believe her claims about Islam being the most feminist religion?

Thanks, mate - your loyalty will not go unrewarded... how do you KNOW she is a 'better' person than anyone else?

Anti-feminism is the religion of peace and the most feminist.... it actually expects that women receive equal treatment.... without argument or dispute... as for the Joanie-come-latelys to this nation - well - let's just say they shouldn't be allowed to climb Ayers Rock or Mt Warning since we attach significant spiritual significance to those sites..... and we want to live OUR way ....

All religion is crap....Yet those that worship cannot see their own failings....I do not support anyone who preaches hate but defending their bullshit religion is to be expected IMO!!!

Huh Huh Huh
