office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Seattle) will
join a rally urging that due process rights be accorded to Muslim detainee
CAIR-Seattle will join al-Massari’s co-workers from the University of
Washington School of Nursing, his attorney, and other civil rights
advocates at the Immigration hearing to determine al-Massari’s

week in solitary confinement in a federal detention center without being
allowed to contact his family or an attorney.
