The man charged is Bilal Ahmed Askaryar, who has provided commentary to NPR and is himself a refugee from Afghanistan.
Via the Washington Examiner:
Bilal Ahmed Askaryar was the man charged with assault, according to Politico, in the effort to block Betsy DeVos from entering a public school.
It’s not clear yet exactly whom Askaryar is charged with assaulting, and Askaryar has pleaded not guilty.
Askaryar is a long-time human rights activist. He wrote a piece last month for NPR in which he tells the gripping story of fleeing Afghanistan with his family.
