October 24th, 2023

Advancing American Freedom submitted a FOIA request to the Department of Homeland Security for communications regarding her fitness to serve as a reviewer of alien applications for asylum status after posting content on social media praising Hamas. Nejwa Ali was previously employed as a spokeswoman for the Palestine Liberation Organization.

“After Nejwa Ali was placed on leave after sharing extremist posts supporting Hamas the Department of Homeland Security must give answers regarding Ali’s employment history,” said J. Marc Wheat, AAF General Counsel. “The American people deserve answers about what the Department of Homeland Security knew about this PLO operative before hiring her.”
