A Review of the Treatment of Aliens Held on Immigration Charges in Connection with the Investigation of the September 11 Attacks
Hein’s Electronic Documents Reprint Series, #11

Shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the U.S. Attorney General directed the FBI and other federal law enforcement personnel to use “every available law enforcement tool” to arrest persons participating in, or lending support to, terrorist activities. Within two months, authorities had detained at least 1,200 citizens and aliens nationwide. While some were questioned and released without charge, many were arrested for violating federal immigration law. This work reviews the allegations that began to arise in the media that detainees were being mistreated, which led to several individual detainees and non-profit organizations filing lawsuits against the Department of Justice protesting the lack of information about the detainees and the length and condition of their confinement.
