Illegal Alien NBA Hopeful Charged With Sexual Assault Denied Bond

Sep. 17, 2017

Texas Prairie View A&M University basketball star, Yusuf Yakubu, remains in jail after a judge denied bail in his sexual assault case on Friday. During his bond hearing, the NBA hopeful admitted under oath that he is a citizen of Nigeria but indicated he was a U.S. citizen on his college admission paperwork.

An investigator for the Waller County District Attorney's office testified that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is after Yakubu because his visa has expired and he overstayed his allotted time in the country. Yakubu originally entered the United States on a tourist visa which was later adjusted to a visitor visa, according to the district attorney's office. Breitbart Texas reported that an overstay report from an immigration think tank in May "indicates that foreign students as a group, are twice as likely to remain after their visas expire as nonimmigrants generally."

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that the agency issued an immigration detainer on the foreign national.

A Waller County, Texas, grand jury indicted Yakubu on August 11 for the second degree felony of sexual assault. The indictment obtained by Breitbart Texas states that the Prairie View A&M basketball player "intentionally and knowingly caused the penetration of the sexual organ of [complainant's name omitted] by defendant's sexual organ."
