“First they came for the Communists, and I did nothing”
NION stages street theatre at the INS protest in Los Angeles today, this being the final day for Group 2 males from several Arab countries to register at the INS. A few weeks back, at the deadline for Group 1 males, hundreds were arrested for little or no cause, without warrants, with the whereabouts of some still unknown.
There are numerous observers there today, taking names of those registering (if requested) plus contact information, in case they are arrested. The bulk of the registrants will arrive after 2 PM, as they are their mosques today, Friday being the Muslim day of worship.
As of noon, no one knew if any arrests had occurred. Only registrants are allowed inside. No observers.
