Kutmah was born in the UK to an Egyptian mother and Scottish father. He moved to the US with
his mother when he was 12 years old. They immediately applied for residency to keep them from being sent to
Egypt. As a British citizen the court ruled that he would be able to live in the UK which in their eyes
wasn't such a bad place. They denied their application.
Kutmah and his Mom returned to court to plead their case 14 years ago when Kutmah was 20. They were again
denied a green card and were urged to sign a document stating they would voluntary leave the US.
On Wednesday morning, May 5th armed agents entered Kutmah's house and detained him. He was brought to a
facility in downtown LA where he was interrogated. On Thursday he was moved to New Mexico. We need to show
how important Kutmah is to the LA and US community. Please write a letter and spread the word!
