A woman from Evergreen Park was arrested and charged with concealing her history as a terrorist when she applied for U.S. citizenship.

Rasmieh Yousef Odeh served prison time for a series of terrorist bombings in Israel in 1969; she was part of a Palestinian group that bombed several areas around Jerusalem.

Two people were killed in one of those bombings; but Odeh made no mention of her arrest or prison time in her immigration documents.

If she is convicted of immigration fraud, Odeh could return to prison for ten years, lose her American citizenship, and possibly be deported.

She is set to appear in federal court in Detroit next month.
