From Los Angeles, the government has granted temporary legal residency to two members of a group targeted for deportation a decade ago for alleged ties to terrorists. Aiad Khaled Barakat and Naim Nadim Sharif were informed recently by the Immigration and Naturalization Service that their applications have been approved. They’re part of the group known as the L.A. 8 — seven Palestinians and a Kenyan, the wife of one of them whom the government has been trying to deport since 1987.
