A Palestinian woman and four of her children were released Saturday morning from the Texas immigration detention center where they had been held for three months. Immigration officers arrested Salaheddin Ibrahim, his wife, Hanan, and four of their children in November at their Richardson, Texas, home more than two years after their petition for asylum was denied. Hanan Ibrahim, 34, who is five months pregnant, has been incarcerated since then at the T. Don Hutto Detention Center in Taylor, near Austin, Texas. Four of her children, Hamzeh Ibrahim, 15; Rodaina, 14; Maryam, 8; and Faten, 5, also were detained at the same center. Meanwhile, her husband, 37, was being held at the Rolling Plains Regional Jail in Haskell, near Abilene, Texas. Attorneys for the family expect him to be released soon also.
