Update: Appeals Court uphold IRA Terrorist being Held Without Bail

We reported back in July that King was trying to get an IRA thug out of jail on bail. This guy escaped from a British prison 25 years ago and was caught and is to be deported by the Department of Homeland Security finds a friend in Peter King.
The Belfast Telegraph reports "An American immigration appeals court has upheld Maze escapee Pol Brennan's bail denial, just weeks after three US Congressman wrote to the Department of Homeland Security calling for the Ballymurphy native be freed on bond.

In its ruling this week, the Board of Immigration Appeals in Falls Church, Virginia, agreed with a Texan judge's April ruling that Brennan is a danger to society.

The court said his 1984 entry into America using an alias, and his subsequent purchase of a targeting pistol using the alias, proved that he has criminal tendencies. The court also cited his 2005 misdemeanor assault conviction after a builder allegedly refused to pay Brennan $1,000 in back wages."

The guy was here ILLEGALLY back in 1984.

I thought King opposed amnesty.
