      Justice for New Americans (J4NA) was formerly known as WenHoLee.org.
      New Americans is anyone, regardless race, culture, religion or
      countries of origin and their American born children who continue to
      be treated as if they are "foreigners" no matter how Americanized they
      are. It was started in 1999 from the home of our founder Cecilia Lee

      Our most notable accomplishments are our success in conducting
      advocacy and public relations campaigns on behalf of
      Taiwanese-American scientist Dr. Wen Ho Lee working at Los Alamos
      National Laboratory and Chaplain James Yee working at Guantanamo Bay.
      Both men were released from jail. Dr. Wen Ho Lee was freed with a
      public apology from Judge James Parker. Chaplain James Yee was
      released with all charges dropped.

      After 9/11, Muslims, Arabs and South Asians have been and continue to
      be automatically judged as "terrorists" or "enemy combatants." They
      are harassed, detained, deported, and some have been and continue to
      be under secret arrest.
