Dear Editor:

 Hawa Said, the woman whom Anthony Lewis wrote about last year in two separate opinion pieces in the New York Times, has been issued a United States passport by the United States Department of State.  Last year, INS had sought to deport her to Yemen, where she was born, because INS alleged that she was an aggravated felon.  Ms. Said's father, a US citizen, had naturalized when Ms. Said was under eighteen (18), but INS refused to recognize her claim to US citizenship.  INS kept her in detention for months, shipped her to a detention facility thousands of miles away from her home and attorney, and only released her after an immigration judge granted her withholding of removal.  Ms. Said was nine months pregnant at the time that she was released from INS detention, and had a baby shortly thereafter.  The issuance of her passport hopefully ends any questions about her true citizenship.
