Rasmea Odeh is on trial in Detroit because the federal government alleges she falsely declared on her immigration application in 2004 no arrests, convictions, or imprisonments. Detroit because she first settled here and applied for citizenship. She’d been convicted by Israel for coordinating a bombing attack that killed two Israelis. This after alleged torture which coerced a false confession. Her immediate defense is not fully understanding the application instructions, whether "ever" means "ever anywhere" or only in the United States.
The larger issue is justice.
