03/27/17 – Jess Sundin on Palestinian activist Rasmea Odeh’s impending deportation from the US – The Scott Horton Show

Jess Sundin, a founding member of the Twin Cities-based Anti-War Committee, discusses 69 year-old Palestinian activist Rasmea Odeh’s three year long legal battle with the US government, which charged her with immigration fraud for failing to disclose her conviction of terrorism in an Israeli military court in 1969. She had confessed after being tortured and raped in custody. Now she faces deportation after accepting a plea deal when prosecutors added new charges based on her involvement with a “terrorist organization,” the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
