As the U.S.-led invasion rages in Iraq, the persecution of Arabs and Muslims continues at home.

For the past six months we have been following the story of the the Kesbeh family.

The Kesbehs are Palestinian. They came to the U.S. after fleeing Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War. They lived in Houston, Texas for 11 years but last year armed INS agents raided their house. The father and eldest son were arrested and detained for several months on immigration violations.

When we last spoke with the Kesbeh family on Friday, they were outside a Houston immigration center. They were deported last week. Today we speak with the eldest daughter Noor Kesbeh joining us from a refugee camp in Amman, Jordan.

  • Noor Kesbeh. Was deported with her family to Jordan this Monday and is living in a refugee camp in Amman.
