At the end of March, two young Muslim women were arrested, detained, and accused of plotting to be suicide bombers. They are currently detained in Pennsylvania under UNJUST conditions and are being deprived of their due process rights as:

– The hearings have been CLOSED, with immigration law being manipulated to detain the teenagers;

– They are being held under secret evidence that some FBI and DHS (Department of Homeland Security) officials have admitted are baseless;

– They continue to be detained at a facility deemed unfit for youth by Amnesty International, are limited to one call per week to their parents, have been questioned by the FBI without lawyers present and subjected to threats to deport their parents and put their siblings in foster care if they do not admit to the allegations, & more.

Show the Judge that WE ARE WATCHING & WE DEMAND:
DHS should release the youth to their families!
DHS should open the hearings!
Stop targeting immigrants!
