A Muslim man, who claimed his visa had been denied by the “Trump ban”, appealed to Chuck Schumer’s office, who then fast-tracked and approved the visa, allowing Tanveer Hussain into the U.S. FOUR DAYS LATER, the man was arrested for the sexual assault of 12-year-old girl.
Last month, the U.S. embassy in New Delhi rejected an application for a visa for Hussain. The man wanted to compete in the World Snowshoe Championship in upstate New York. After that visa was rejected, local officials intervened, appealing for help to the offices of Senate Minority Leader, Charles Schumer. Schumer’s offices allowed Hussain to reapply and that visa was then granted.
Hussain is actually from India, and that country is not even listed on Trump’s Executive Order, so his claim is false from the start. And it went from bad to worse…
Hussain and team manager, Abid Khan, arrived February 23rd, in the Bucolic Adirondacks town. Locals offered congratulations and free lodgings at a nearby inn, according to The Washington Post.
Hussain, is now being held in a New York jail on a sex charge, that actually is in the child abuse (and in my opinion, very close to the pedophilia) category. The Police Chief stated, according to Fox News, there are multiple charges against Hussain, who is 24 years old. One is a felony- first-degree sexual abuse; and the other is endangering the welfare of a child- a misdemeanor.
The endangerment charge resulted from Hussain “engaging in a passionate kiss” with a 12-year-old girl, and accusations of the athlete touching her in an “intimate area” over her clothing.
Hussain was arrested Wednesday, March 1st, after the Saranac Lake Village police received a report from the parents of the 12 year old, of the alleged incident, which was reported to have happened on Monday, February 27th. The police chief also confirmed Hussain and the underage girl had been in contact via text messages earlier that day.
Chief Charles A. Potthast Jr., of the Saranac Lake Village police force, said the girl was playing pool Monday afternoon with other young people at the inn where Hussain was staying, according to The Washington Post.
“There was a moment when the two were alone, and that’s when the incident occurred,” Potthast said. The girl told police there was a “passionate kiss” and that Hussain touched her in an intimate area on top of her clothing.
Hussain remains jailed on $10,000 bond. The athlete claims he has done nothing wrong, and they have entered a Non-Guilty plea.
Muddasir Mir, the president of the SnowShoe Federation of India, said the next court hearing is set for Monday, according to The Washington Post.
Hussain’s lawyer told Fox News that he is under the impression that Rep. Elise Stefanik, D-N.Y., was also involved in helping speed the visa process along.
The reason Hussain’s visa was denied in the first place was because he could not prove substantial ties to his country he was claiming he was from- an issue Schumer’s office took no further action to verify before approving the visa.
