  • Abdi has garnered thousands of supporters demanding his release. Dozens protested outside the detention center while his INRC and CUNY CLEAR attorneys presented his final witness for asylum.

    “People are appalled at what has happened to Abdi, and we are demanding that he be released immediately.” #BringAbdiHome

  • CUNY Law Professor Talia Peleg says “I don’t think it was a coincidence he was asked if he was Somali in the airport, less than a week after the Supreme Court allowed the ban to go into effect.”

    It has been 18 months and Abdikadir Mohamed, known to friends and colleagues as Abdi, remains unjustly locked up at the Elizabeth Detention Center, “fighting to remain in the United States and recovering from a serious illness in what supporters say was a case of medical neglect.”

    CUNY CLEAR and CUNY Law’s Immigrant & Non-Citizen Rights Clinic won’t stop persisting to fight for Abdi’s freedom and wellbeing. #FreeAbdi

  • Meet Team Hi Guys.
    Each year, Tarek Ismail, currently Senior Staff Attorney in the Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility (CLEAR) project but soon to be Professor and Co-Director of the Health Law Practice Clinic (!), gathers this 5K team in support of the Friends of UNRWA, a 501(c)(3) which supports the UN agency tasked with serving the needs of refugees in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, the West Bank, and Gaza.

    Tarek does this every year to honor his father who grew up in a UNRWA camp - and the CUNY Law community turns out to support him.

    If you needed another reason #WhyCUNYLaw, I would add this to the list.

    Pictured are Tarek Ismail, CLEAR Staff Attorney Naz Ahmad, Prof John Whitlow (alum), Prof Cindy Soohoo, Prof Talia Peleg (alum), Prof Laura Mott (alum), Prof Brad Parker (lawyering adjunct & alum), Prof Donna Lee, CLEAR teaching alum Diala Shamas and Erin Tomlinson (alum & former adjunct with the Defenders Clinic), among others.
