February 9th-21st is the national week of solidarity with Rasmea Odeh!
On October 22, 2013, Rasmea Yousef Odeh was arrested by agents of the Department of Homeland Security.
She was indicted in federal court, charged with “Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization” based on immigration document answers she filed 20 years ago.
Rasmea is the Associate Director of the Arab American Action Network (AAAN) and has made it her life’s work to empower Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim families. We believe this is yet another politically-motivated arrest by the federal government of those who are critical of U.S. support for Israel’s crimes against Palestinian people.
