Jewish groups are joining a New Jersey congressman in fighting to prevent the deportation of a Pakistani family who had a family member murdered in a post-Sept. 11 bias attack. Rep. Rush Holt (D- N.J.) has enlisted the aid of 20 groups, including the Anti-Defamation League and the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, in backing the family of Waqar Hasan, who was killed on Sept. 15, 2001, in Texas, in a retaliation for the Sept. 11 attacks.
