A convicted rapist who was deported from the US in 2017 was recently arrested at Dulles after catching Ethiopian Airlines evacuation flight out of Kabul.
Ghader Heydari, 47, boarded a flight for evacuees but was flagged by border officials upon arrival into Washington.
A man whose name and age match Heydari‘s pleaded guilty to rape in Ada County, Idaho, in 2010, and he served more than five years in prison. According to The Washington Times, Heydari came to the US as a refugee and was granted a green card in 2000.
It's not clear how he got on the flight because it was 'unlikely' that he had a Special Immigrant Visa or that he was a refugee.
