Student detained for visa issues!

Dear UW community,

One of our students, Bangally Fatty, has been detained and is facing possible deportation. He is currently imprisoned in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, but his attorneys -- students at the UW Law School -- are requesting that he be released pending the adjudication of his application for a T visa. This would enable him to continue his studies, and to serve as a parent to his three-month old daughter, while he awaits a decision in his case.

We have seen in other cases that public pressure can influence the outcome in immigration cases. Bangally has been an exceptionally conscientious student, is a valued member of our community, and especially because he is the first current student we're aware of who is facing deportation, I think it is important that our community stand by him to send a strong message that we support our students.

Please sign and share this petition in support of our student.

    The editors and staff at Daily Kos never manage to write about all the different aspects that we'd like to cover, and we're certainly not expert in everything. The best way to get that topic out there is to start writing stories about it yourself on the main site.

    In case you'd like some tips:
