Letter from a Western Asian detainee
Author CCI has been in detention for almost seven weeks with his friend, brother, and cousin. The group of four arrived together and are fleeing their home country in Western Asia due to religious persecution for converting to Christianity. He writes of the risks the group has taken to come to the U.S. and asks the Allies for help with commissary funds for food and referrals to legal help and to protestant churches that could assist them.
