Abdirahman Ali Gaal was removed from the flight bound for Mexico City from Paris on Sunday at the request of U.S. officials.
“Mr. Gaal, a legal permanent resident, was returned to the United States were he is currently being questioned by DHS,” Matt Chandler, a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security, said in a statement Tuesday.
Chandler declined to provide any additional information on the case.
Gaal, who according to the Globe and Mail, is a native of Somalia in his 30s, was being held in custody in Montreal pending a detention review hearing scheduled for Wednesday morning.
But an official with the Canadian Border Services Agency confirmed Tuesday that the hearing had been cancelled.
