USF grad waits for new INS deadline
Immigration officials said Thursday that USF graduate Adullah Hatahet will have to wait until today to register again with the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
INS officials refused to reinstate Hatahet of his legal status because he missed the registration deadline by one day.
Between today and Feb. 7, men from 18 countries who missed the previous deadline Dec. 16 will have another opportunity to report without facing penalty for having to come forward.
Hatahet, 22, missed the deadline because he said he was up all night working on a class project so he could graduate. He was then detained for four days and was told that he could face deportation.
However, the Justice Department granted a second chance after the registration program resulted in problems nationwide. According to a St. Petersburg Times report, hundreds of men were detained in the first phase of registration last month, none of were on a terrorist watch list.
