Imam overstays VISA

The religious leader of the Alabama Islamic Education Center in Huntsville, arrested April 19 for a visa overstay, is still in federal custody in Louisiana in what his attorney calls an injustice.

"He just wants to go back to his wife and children (in London)," said G.R. Mahmood, a lawyer specializing in international and immigration law, speaking from his Birmingham office Wednesday. "For no fault of his own, he is paying a terrible price."
