Nadine is a Muslim American whose experience post-9/11 is strikingly similar to that of Japanese Americans post-Pearl Harbor. She recounts a frightening episode when federal agents raided her family home in the early morning hours a few months after September 11, 2001. She and her parents were detained at the Seattle Immigration and Naturalization Service Center for nine months. Eventually, Nadine and her parents were released and granted permanent resident status.
This clip is excerpted from a speech given in 2003.
