“If you don’t like the idea of an El-Wire, go back to ‘The Wire'”

Posted October 13, 2018 11:02:22A new study by a leading US academic and a prominent human rights activist has found that the United States is more likely to detain people on the basis of their ethnicity than it is to detain on the grounds of race.

El-Wire’s report was published this week by the University of Michigan’s School of International and Public Affairs, a school with a history of promoting human rights.

The report, titled “El-wire: The US, its human rights and the El-wire”, shows that the US has held more people on terrorism-related charges than any other country.

The study found that since the 9/11 attacks, there have been 4,891 people detained on terrorism charges in the US.

That number is less than one-fifth of the 4,879 people detained in the past year.

The number of people held on terrorism related charges in other countries is nearly double that.

ElWire also analyzed data from a number of countries, including Turkey, Egypt, and Yemen, that it says has not released information on their detention statistics.

“This study shows that if you look at the number of cases that are on terrorism offenses, the United State is more than 10 times more likely than other countries to detain an individual based on their ethnicity,” says the study’s lead author, John C. Balsamo, a professor at the University at Buffalo School of Law and former director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s National Security Project.

Balsamo says he was inspired to write the report after watching the case of Adnan Khashoggi, a Saudi national who was held at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba for more than a decade.

“I found it absolutely chilling, and so I wrote it,” he told The Hill.

“I didn’t know that many people had written about the case.”

Balsambo says the number one concern of human rights advocates is the lack of transparency in the country’s justice system.

“When we talk about what happened at Guantanamo, there were a number things that people didn’t hear about,” he said.

“And so I wanted to make sure that people had all the information they could possibly want to know about what went on there.”

The report also found that about 3,000 people were held in the United Nations compound in New York for their alleged roles in terrorist attacks in 2011.

Balamo says those cases are still under review.

The report found that over the past five years, the number the US holds on terrorism convictions has risen from more than 200,000 to more than 500,000.

The data show that the number held on terror-related crimes rose by over 6,000 percent over that period.
