In 2013, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh was convicted of Immigration fraud, after failing to disclose her role in a 1969 Jerusalem bombing that killed 2 people and injured others.

Odeh served 10 years of a life sentence, but was released as part of a prisoner exchange with the PLO/PLFP for 76 Israeli soldiers who were captured in Lebanon.

In 1995 she immigrated to the US via Jordan, and was naturalized in 2004, omitting her terrorist conviction on her immigration form.

Moving to Chicago, Odeh became the associate director at the Arab American Action Network.

Odeh is scheduled for a court hearing on Wednesday, according to an AP report, and is likely to plead guilty, in which case she will likely be stripped of her US citizenship, and have to leave the U.S.
