“A peaceful sense of disbelief,” is how Ralph Isenberg describes his feelings when he took a phone call Sunday afternoon in Dallas and heard the voice of Salaheddin Ibrahim thanking him for helping to release the Ibrahim family from three months of prison at the hands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“The phone call confirmed that the man is free and that his nightmare is over,” said Isenberg. “I asked him if he was okay. He said the family is fine, and they are looking forward to staying in the country.”
Isenberg pledged to continue efforts to secure legal residency for the Ibrahim family.
“I think that our government owes Mr. Ibrahim and his family an apology,” said Isenberg. “And I think the appropriate form of apology would be granting them legal residency.”–gm
