01.16.18 - State Lawmakers Call On Trump Administration To Release Othman

 

State Reps. Michele Lepore-Hagan (D-Youngstown) and John Boccieri (D-Poland) today expressed shock and anger at Amer “Al” Adi Othman’s sudden detention at the hands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Less than a week ago, the state lawmakers celebrated ICE’s decision delaying Othman’s deportation, only to have it overturned a few days later without reason. The Youngstown lawmakers released the following joint statement:

“Seven weeks ago, Al Adi was handing out Thanksgiving dinners to members of the downtown community,” said Lepore-Hagan and Boccieri. “Today, we are fighting for his very existence in this country and to keep his family together. We call on ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan and the Trump Administration to put an end to this ordeal and restore humanity to our federal government. This has been incredibly erratic behavior coming out of Washington on Adi’s case, and we demand an explanation for this injustice.”
