Case Detail


Al Najjar v. Ashcroft
In late August, the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) deported Mazen Al Najjar, a suspected fundraiser for Palestinian terrorists, to an undisclosed Middle East country. Despite efforts by the ACLU, the INS was allowed to continue to detain Al Najjar up until the date of his departure. The continued detention of the suspected terrorist was a victory for WLF, which on two occasions filed briefs in the federal appeals court in support of Al Najjar's detention. WLF argued that the INS does not violate the First Amendment rights of illegal aliens by detaining those it believes have engaged in fundraising for terrorist groups.
Case Status:
