20 Chaldean Christians Who Escaped ISIS Still Being Detained By Immigration Officials

Despite having family members to sponsor them, a group of 20 Chaldean Christians who fled ISIS have been detained for over four months at the Otay Detention Facility in San Diego. The large Chaldean community in Southern California are unhappy with the unexplained delays and are demanding their release.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) claim they are undermanned and face a backlog of cases but have offered little to the media about the prolonged detention of the Chaldean 20.

Mark Arabo, an activist and spokesmen for the local Chaldean community says, “What we do know is that they are being held without a real reason.”

  • Now if they were Muslims…

    • BillyHW

      Or Mexicans…

    “What we do know is that they are being held without a real reason.”

    Oh there’s a reason, they are Christians.

    They should have said they were homosexuals.

  • Jade

    If they where from Mexico there would be no problem

  • Blacksmith

    They should have come over the southern border then all would be fine.
