IN THIS ISSUE:
*** GET REGISTERED, GET DETAINED OR GET DEPORTED
*** PRETEXT FOR MASS DETENTIONS: ACLU
*** SENATOR KENNEDY CALLS FOR SUSPENSION
*** MUSLIMS FILE LAWSUIT TO BE HEARD BY SUPREME COURT
*** WHAT IMAMS, MOSQUES, HALAL SHOPS, AND MSAS CAN DO
*** DOWNLOAD A FLIER TO INFORM OTHERS
*** MUSLIM CANADIANS AND US IMMIGRATION

Assalamu Alaikum:
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) calls the Immigrant
Registration Program a pretext for mass detentions. Senators Edward
Kennedy & Russell Feingold are calling for its suspension and Muslim
civil rights organizations have filed a lawsuit against it which
will be heard by the US Supreme Court.

Information may be the best defense against these hysterical actions
by the US Justice Department. We request all Imams, mosques,
churches, MSAs, businesses, and activists to give top priority to
informing non-suspecting, law abiding, Muslim males in the US who
are non-citizens or non-green card holders that they must register
with the INS if they fall in that category.

These actions are a mockery of justice. A foreign student who had
only three hours of coursework left to graduate took only that much
course load. But when he went to register with the INS, they
detained him. Horror stories abound. So please do not take any
chances. Inform, educate, pray, register, and pray.

Whenever the economy is down, there is a rush to blame and punish
immigrants. But this time, the fear of terror is being used on top
of a bad economy by the INS, which issued visas to the bombers of
WTC even after their deaths.

There were more than 20,000 people in INS detention last year, four
times more than what the number used to be six years ago, thanks to
the 1996 Immigration "Reforms." The proposed budget for fiscal 2003
slates more than $50 million for the construction of detention
facilities, while $615 million will be spent on contracting out
immigrant detention. The Attorney General John Ashcroft has promised
to hunt down millions of immigrants and visitors who fail to report
address changes to the INS.

Some 30 million people enter the United States each year, almost all
of them on student, tourist, or business visas; about a million seek
to settle here and build new lives. They bring billions of dollars
to the US economy while pursuing their dreams and building a
uniquely American human mosaic. Immigrants pay an estimated $133
billion in direct taxes.

This inhuman treatment will speak far louder against the US in the
world than any public diplomacy or public relations America does.

*** GET YOUR LOCAL MEDIA TO MAKE PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS:
You can approach your local media to announce a short message: "If
you are a male, 16 years or older, from any of the 21 designated
countries without a green card or citizenship, you may be required
to register with the INS. Call the INS for more detail at 1 (800)
375-5283." After January 10th 2003 you can request a repeated public
service announcement as follows:

"If you are a male, 16 years or older, from Pakistan or Saudi
Arabia, without a green card or US citizenship, you may be required
to register with the INS. Call the INS for more details at 1 (800)
375-5283 or check SoundVision.com/info/ins".

*** READ CAREFULLY WHAT HAPPENED TO THOSE WHO WENT TO REGISTER:
Those who registered early were better off than those who waited
until the last day. Most horror stories deal with those who went the
last day. Read all you can about that experience so you can prepare
better at

*** SENATORS KENNEDY AND FEINGOLD CALL FOR THE SUSPENSION
While most of the country is silent about this Christmas gift to
Muslims, Senators Edward Kennedy and Russell Feingold have shown
courage and spoken out against the INS registrations:

*** CANADIAN MUSLIMS STILL FACING PROBLEMS ENTERING US
Although the US promised Canada it will not fingerprint or harass
Canadian citizens from Muslim countries, it continues to happen
every day. In some cases, even white, Canadian-born, Muslims are
also being harassed and detained. Here is an account of what
happened to a principled Pakistani-Canadian recently.

*** WAIT! THIS IS NOT THE ONLY REGISTRATION:
Muslims need to follow every obscure law nowadays. One of these
requires all males between 18 and 26 to register. This one you can
just do online. It’s for Selective Service.

*** ARE YOU PLANNING TO MOVE?
If you are not a green card holder, then you need to inform the INS
of your new address within 10 days. This is the law. If you are a
green card holder, now a part of your moving list is to inform Uncle
Sam within 30 days of your move of your new address.
