Description

In the wake of large arrests of people from Muslim countries, LAWeekly talks about the immigration issues the U.S faced after 1991 Gulf War. The story revolves around war refugees temporarily housed in two camps at Rafha and Al Arwatiyah in Saudi Arabia. The Weekly details the experiences of Rob Frazier who was then posted as political official at the American embassy in Riyadh. After having finally made a repatriation agreement with the U.N, it was discovered that "sleeper agents" of Saddam Hussein could well have sneaked in. And some of them might well be in the U.S now after being allowed in through a rather humanitarian security system.
