 From the "Get your civil rights back" department:


Intel engineer Mike Hawash is in solitary confinement in a federal prison 
in Sheridan, Ore.

On Mar. 20, the FBI arrested Hawash at gunpoint in Intel's parking lot near 
Portland for reasons that remain confidential. A 38-year-old American 
citizen with a wife and three children, he has not been charged with a crime.

This is a development that deserves close attention in the technology 
community. More than other industries, the computer business relies on 
immigrants. And some, like Hawash, are getting caught up in the U.S. 
Justice Department's campaign against suspected domestic terrorists.
