"I believe that I did the right thing, and I would do it again", Wasserman Schultz told the Sun Sentinel on Thursday.

Imran Awan, 37, was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at Dulles International Airport in Virginia on Monday as he attempted to fly to Qatar then Pakistan.

"I had grave concerns about his due process rights being violated", Wasserman Schultz said.

'I had grave concerns about his due process rights being violated, ' she told the Florida Sun Suntinal.

"He is from Pakistan", Wasserman Schultz told the Sun Sentinel. "It would have been easier for me to just fire him", she said. She threatened "consequences" if they did not return it and refused to kick Awan off her payroll despite him being a target of a cybersecurity investigation. "There are times when you can't be afraid to stand alone, and you have to stand up for what's right".

Authorities had been watching him for months as part of an investigation into information and equipment theft. Wasserman Schultz says she has him help her with other "technological issues".
