Wedding Day Blues

My newest story in the Voice is about Tariq Rivzi, one of approximately 2500 South Asian immigrants to New York City who have been detained or deported since September 11, many seemingly without reason.
Secret prisons and unexplained imprisonments...

UPDATE: Tariq Rivzi was released April 20, I learned. On parole, no explanation. Amazing coincidence, no? Go to the Council on Peoples' Organization if you want to get involved and help more New Yorkers in his community, with legal clinics, afterschool programs, ESL classes, or a donation.
