Mark Hicks and Sarah Rahal The Detroit News Published 9:29 PM EST Jan 15, 2019 A judge has ordered the return of a deported Iraqi detainee following a quixotic multi-country bid to find the man after the federal government realized it had mistakenly removed him. The order filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit sets a Jan. 24 deadline for the return of the former detainee, Muneer Subaihani. “Respondents shall place Mr. Subaihani on an order of supervision once he arrives in the United States,” Judge Mark Goldsmith wrote. The filing is the latest development in a class-action lawsuit the ACLU filed nearly two years ago to halt federal immigration officials from deporting more than 1,400 Iraqi nationals swept up in ICE raids in 2017. The Iraqis were arrested across the country without warning and threatened with immediate deportation, though many came here as children and have lived and worked in the United States for decades, ACLU officials … [Read more...] about Judge: Deported Iraqi detainee must be returned to U.S.

Sarah Rahal and James David Dickson The Detroit News Published 7:10 PM EST Nov 20, 2018 Detroit — A federal judge ordered the release Tuesday of roughly 100 Iraqi detainees held for more than 16 months, saying the federal government cannot indefinitely detain foreign nationals. U.S. District Court Judge Mark Goldsmith granted two motions filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan in 2017: release of the detainees and sanctioning of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for "demonstrably false statements to the court designed to delay the proceedings." "The law is clear that the federal government cannot indefinitely detain foreign nationals while it seeks to repatriate them when there is no significant likelihood of repatriation in the reasonably foreseeable future," Goldsmith said in an opinion released Tuesday. The case, Hamama vs. Adducci, sought to end the detention of some 1,400 Iraqis nationally, including … [Read more...] about U.S. District judge orders release of Iraqis targeted for deportation
Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press Published 10:09 AM EDT Oct 16, 2018 “Shame!” “Shame!” “Shame!” History unfolded on the TV screen in Dwane Casey's downtown San Antonio hotel room earlier this month. A mob of protesters were shouting at West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, who had just announced his support for then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. “Shame on you!” “Shame on you!” “Shame on you!” Casey, the first-year Detroit Pistons head coach, was entranced. A political junkie, the drama unfolding on CNN drew his attention away from the sit-down interview with the Detroit Free Press. Casey was fixated on the proceedings, from Maine Senator Susan Collins’ impassioned defense of her decision to support Kavanaugh to when it became clear that President Trump’s pick was going to be the next Supreme Court justice. When finality set in, Casey switched the TV to a playoff baseball … [Read more...] about Detroit Pistons: How Dwane Casey’s rise was fueled by N-word
The night 18-year-old Bernard Howard was hauled into Detroit police headquarters he was unequivocal: he knew nothing. Police had heard a man nicknamed Snoop—something Howard’s friend on the east side called him—might’ve been involved in a triple homicide, but Howard was clear: he didn’t know a thing. So he was released. Three days later, when officers brought him downtown again, they’d changed their tune. He was being held overnight for murder. That was July 1994. At the time Howard was a young man with a family to take care of and a prospective job at a General Motors plant in the works. But instead of working on a car production line he has been imprisoned ever since, fighting a murder conviction that he maintains was manufactured by Detroit police and an enterprising jailhouse informant. More than that, Howard and defense attorneys in similar cases say that he wasn’t alone in suffering his fate; that police and this informant led … [Read more...] about The Would-Be Auto Worker Caught Up In A Detroit Prison Snitch Scandal
