      Subject: Phone the INS and Support Ethiopian Man Facing Deportation!

      PLEASE CALL the Immigration and Naturalization Service and Help OCAP Stop
      this Deportation! (See below for phone numbers)


      OCAP is very glad to report that Immigration Canada has ACCEPTED the Group
      of Five sponsorship that has been set up in order that Ali Ebrahim can
      come to Canada. This means that instead of being sent back to Ethiopia by
      the U.S. government - to persecution and even death - he can be landed in
      Canada. However, the INS has not responded to OCAP's request that his
      deportation be canceled, he be released and his sponsorship go ahead.
      As of now his deportation is still scheduled for September 11th.

      Deporting Ali to Ethiopia, even when everything is in place for him to
      come to Canada, would be entirely deplorable on the part of the INS,
      showing once again they care nothing for the lives of refugees like Ali.
      PLEASE CALL the INS and demand that they allow Ali Ebrahim to come to
      Canada. Tell them they MUST cancel his deportation immediately,
      especially since his sponsorship has already been accepted. This is an
      incredibly timely matter as his deportation date is just two days away.

      Thank you for your support regarding this case.
      If you need additional information please call OCAP at: 416-925-6939

      When you are calling on Ali Ebrahim's behalf you can include his INS
