A University of Texas student who threatened to blow up a police station and shoot officers during a protest has been deported.
The student, who is from New York, was convicted of assaulting a police officer in May.
He was sentenced to six months in prison, which he violated during his probation.
His deportation is a victory for the Texas Civil Rights Project, which had been pursuing his deportation.
The group appealed to President Donald Trump to allow him to stay in the United States.
“Our hope is that this case sends a clear message that the Trump administration will stand with students of color who are threatened or victimized by police brutality,” said Michael Hays, executive director of the Texas-based civil rights group.
“They must not be intimidated or harassed in the streets.”
The U.S. Department of Justice did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
A U.N. panel in December criticized the Justice Department for failing to investigate the shooting, calling it an “attack on the right to peaceful assembly and the right of the public to assemble.”
In the video, a man in a dark suit and sunglasses shouts, “You are killing the American police, and you are killing our officers!”
The police officer is heard asking the man in the video if he has a weapon, and the man replies: “Yes, I have a gun.”
The man then says: “This is a war, and we are going to win.”
The footage was posted to YouTube by a YouTube user named @JZLN and has been viewed more than 5.5 million times.
On Sunday, the university tweeted: “The University of Chicago has expelled an undergraduate student for threatening to blowup the police station with a bomb and to shoot police officers.
The UIC Police Department condemns this threat and is investigating the incident.
This was not an isolated incident.
As part of our commitment to fostering a safe and democratic campus environment, we will continue to vigorously enforce campus safety protocols.”
The video, which the group said was filmed on June 26, was shared on Twitter by a Twitter user named Zara (@zara_hayes).
@Zara_Hayes posted the video on Twitter on June 30, saying that the video was shot by a student named Z.H. The video shows two students at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, talking about a bomb threat that was made on campus on June 24.
The students say that they have no bombs and no plans to carry out a bomb attack, but the student who filmed the video asks the two to “go out and make some bombs.”
The student in the videos says, “I’m going to go out and blow up the police department.”
The two students say they have a bomb, but are not clear if they have any plans to detonate the bombs.
The two other students who are present in the photo are wearing masks.
The videos were recorded during a class titled “Critical Theory: What Does It Mean?” on campus in the UIC student union.
