End Detention Abuse: Free Charley Chehoud!

Charley Chehoud is an asylum seeker who left Lebanon in 1989 to escape religious persecution. He has worked with New Jersey police for years – even helping solve a high profile murder case. Because of a missed court date, he is facing deportation and ICE continues to hold him in solitary confinement.

Vigil Demanding ICE  Stop Inhumane Treatment of Immigrants and Release Charley

Tuesday January 31st from 12pm- 3pm

Essex County Correctional Facility (354 Doremus Avenue, Newark, NJ 07105)

Charley has faced violence and almost two weeks of solitary confinement. His treatment exemplifies the rampant abuse that takes place behind the Essex County Jail’s walls.

Pax Christi NJ and American Friends Service Committee Immigrant Rights Program are holding vigil to ask ICE to stop their inhumane treatment of all immigrants and to release Charley to his fiancé, Veronica. Can you join?
