dilawar syed

Syed's confirmation ends more than two years of delays after a blockade by Republicans in the last Congress.
Dilawar Syed, picked by Biden for the No. 2 job at the Small Business Administration, has been waiting longer than any other nominee for a vote.
Republican senators have refused to allow Syed to get a committee vote to be deputy administrator for the Small Business Administration.
If confirmed to the Small Business Administration, Dilawar Syed would become the highest-ranking Muslim official in the administration.
Syed would be the highest-ranking Muslim official in the Biden administration if confirmed, but GOP senators are refusing to even show up for the vote.
