“He’s a peaceful man who had nothing to do with the coup attempt. They have no evidence for their accusations,” said Ucan, 38, who emigrated to the U.S. from Turkey in 2001.He earned a master’s degree in computer engineering at Manhattan College. This summer he became a naturalized American citizen. He and his wife have two children and live in Delmar. He is looking for a new job and hopes to stay in the area. He’ll volunteer for the organization that formerly paid him, although many of the 250 local Turks are fearful of association with a Gulen-linked organization because of Erdogan’s power.
