Iraqi Americans Protest in Sterling Heights

by Weam Namou

Yesterday was an exhausting and sad day as I interviewed families of the 100+ Iraqi-born people who were rounded up Sunday from their homes, churches, restaurants, and one elderly was even taken out of the hospital. Some of them have been here since 1978 with “crimes” that consisted of a brawl in a bar and possession of marijuana over 25 years ago (when it was considered a felony, now it’s a misdemeanor).

Full story will be published by The Chaldean News.
