Singer Cat Stevens Demands Probe Into Deportation

“U.S. Homeland Security spokesman Brian Doyle said Islam had been denied entry because of “activities that could be potentially linked to terrorism.”

The 57-year-old singer said Friday he wanted to clear his name and ensure nothing similar happened again.

“I was not given (and still haven’t been given) any explanation as to what it is I am accused of, or why I am now deemed an apparent security threat,” he said in a statement.

“We have now initiated a legal process to try to find out exactly what is going on, and to take all necessary steps to undo the very serious, and wholly unfounded, injustice which I suffered,” he added. ”

I am not sure that I really care one way or another about this story. I was told that I might have trouble entering certain Arab/Muslim countries since I have numerous stamps from exits and entries into Israel.



Should I be upset by this.

    At least you would know why you were denied. Stevens was in L.A. this summer. What has changed in the last few months for him. It looks as if at this time our goverment is hiding behind secrecy rather than explaining why.
