The San Diego Union-Tribune: Attorneys outline bleak reentry prospects to worried Somalis

PANA's director of civic engagement and community partnerships Ismahan Abdullahi was quoted by by The San Diego Union-Tribune in the article "Attorneys outline bleak reentry prospects to worried Somalis", published on Jan 29, 2017 by James DeHaven.

The passage:

Ismahan Abdullahi, an event organizer who fled war-torn Somalia with her family in 1992, pulled no punches in describing the effort as a “Muslim ban.”

“We are not afraid to stand up as a community and fight,” Abdullah said. “The Muslim ban is unconstitutional, unethical, immoral and unjust. We condemn it in the strongest possible terms.” “We are saying today that we will not stay silent in the face of such injustice.”
