This item has been circulating in several major news outlets, but for those who’ve missed it, a chance to read the troubling story of Mike Hawash.
In brief, Mike Hawash is a naturalized American citizen of Palestinian descent, imprisoned about two weeks ago under federal material witness statutes. The FBI has refused to disclose whether or not they intend to charge Mike with a crime, or even if they ever intend to question him. It has yet to be established that Mike is actually a “material witness” to anything. Based on his life as an American and his ties to his community, Mike is not a danger to anyone and does not pose a flight risk. Mike is presently held in solitary confinement in a federal prison facility without bail.
This is not America.
