America must stand by her friends!
In his August 8, 2011 New York Times Article (http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/09/us/09bar.html), Adam Liptak outlines how an interpretation of asylum law on the part of the Fifth Circuit of U.S. Court of Appeals amounts to a death sentence for Redina and Rediol Demiraj.
In the words of E. Joshua Rosenkranz, a lawyer with Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe, which represents the family:
"Instead of rewarding Mr. Demiraj for risking his life to protect us from a ruthless gangster, the government delivers his family right into the gangster’s clutches.”
“It’s immoral and illegal. But it’s also reckless. If that is how we treat our friends, pretty soon we won’t have any friends left to protect us.”
Please add your voice to those federal law enforcement officers who on July 25, 2011 filed their Brief for Former Federal Law Enforcement Officers as Amici Curiae in Support of Petitioners (http://www.orrick.com/fileupload/3859.pdf) and ask the Supreme Court to Grant Petition for Writ of Certiorari.
Do not throw the Demiraj Family to the dogs!
