Hisham (aged 32) and Mounis (aged 29) are both undocumented Palestinian asylum seekers who have been granted “credible fear,” the first step in claiming humanitarian protection, and so should be released from ICE detention immediately.

Hisham and Mounis fled Gaza four years ago due to very real fear for their lives resulting from continued violence and poverty under US-sponsored Israeli military occupation. Both young men are considered low-priority for deportation according to ICE’s own standards. As asylum seekers already granted credible fear, we are demanding that ICE release them immediately.

A humanitarian aid-based community in Tucson, Arizona welcomes Hisham and Mounis to support their ongoing needs.
