Note: the Wednesday hearing referenced below has been rescheduled for Thursday
We were curious why the mother and children of the Ibrahim family could be released early Saturday morning from T. Don Hutto prison, whereas Salaheddin cannot rejoin his family from the Haskell prison until after a hearing in Dallas on Wednesday. So we sent some questions to Ibrahim family attorney John Wheat Gibson:
TCRR: Hi John, in the interest of a more complete picture, what administrative action effecting the release of Hanan and children was not taken for Sala?
John Wheat Gibson: NONE
TCRR: Is the difference between the San Antonio and Dallas deportation regions
relevant to why one release was quicker than the other?
John Wheat Gibson: I DON’T KNOW
TCRR: Also, will Sala be at the hearing?
John Wheat Gibson: POSSIBLY IN PERSON, BUT PROBABLY BY TELEVISION
