Omar Ameen is a Sacramento community member and Iraqi refugee who has had his life destroyed by the Trump administration. He was falsely accused of being an ISIS commander and has spent nearly thee years wrongly imprisoned in a federal detention facility, awaiting extradition to Iraq and a likely death penalty. On Wednesday, against all odds, Omar had an enormous legal win. Judge Brennan found the defense “obliterated probable cause” and denied Omar’s extradition. He said of the prosecution's case: "this series of events is simply not possible. Instead of going home to his family, Omar was immediately whisked off by ICE for deportation hearings. If he is sent back to Iraq, it would surely be a death sentence for him. It is unconscionable that Trump's anti-Muslim immigration policies would continue under Biden. The U.S. has already done too much to this man and his family. Please lobby on Omar's behalf.
