(Excerpt) Today we are here to protest the deportation of 13,000 detainees due to the special INS registration...Since 911, Muslims, Arabs, and South Asians have been suffering the backlash and have lost almost all of their civil liberties and constitutional rights. We have been defending our loyalites and patriotism to America. Even though we are law abiding citizens -- hard working citizens of the U.S., we have been labeled as terrorists.Posted by Lisa at June 17, 2003 07:15 PM | TrackBack
