Immigration News of the Day

Judge Denies Al-Najjar Defense Team Preview of Secret Evidence
According to the Bradenton Herald an immigration judge ruled that imprisoned former professor Mazen Al-Najjar will have no prior access to the secret evidence government attorneys will use against him behind closed doors. Al-Najjar has been detained at the INS detention center for three years without bond because government attorneys say he was associated with the terrorist group Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

The Washington Post reports on a case which points out the capricious nature of the INS's deportation policy. While public pressure has been building on Congress and the INS to ease four-year-old deportation laws that even some law enforcement officials view as Draconian, others say the INS does not do enough to expel non-citizens who commit crimes.
