Farouk Abdel Muhti has been in jail for more than six months. He needs
our help if he is to regain his freedom in the near future. There have been
many cases of immigrants held by the INS for years. We do not want this to
happen to Farouk. We are demanding that the INS free him NOW!
This Saturday, November 23, we will march to the INS building in Newark
to demand Farouk's freedom. To get there simply take the Path train which
goes to Newark at 33rd Street and Sixth Avenue in Manhattan. The trip takes
less than an hour and the fare is $1.50. We will congregate in front of Penn
Station and Market Street in Newark at 12:30 pm. The INS building is just
seven blocks away. We hope you can find a couple of hours for this
important event. Please forward this message.
New York-area Palestinian activist Farouk Abdel
Muhti, who has lived in the US for more than 24
years, has been held in jail by the Immigration and
Naturalization Service for seven months. He is not
charged with any crime; he is being held allegedly
on the basis of a 1995 deportation order-even
though the INS been unable to deport stateless
Palestinians like Farouk.
Since his arrest on April 26, he has lost considerable weight,
his eyesight has deteriorated and is taking medicine for high
blood pressure. Farouk sometimes has problems with
Farouk was clearly arrested for political reasons. In March of
this year he began working regularly at WBAI-FM,
arranging interviews with Palestinian spokespeople at a time
when the Israeli military was invading West Bank cities and
His legal team has demanded his release pursuant to
the Supreme Court's 2001 decision in Zadvydas v. Davis,
which limits detention to six months for most immigrants
facing deportation. But public pressure will be the decisive
factor in freeing Farouk.
