CIVIL LIBERTIES: Irish Activist Bernadette Devlin McAliskey Barred Entry into U.S. at Chicago's O'Hare Airport

Irish activist and former Member of Parliament, Bernadette Devlin McAliskey was detained by immigration officials in Chicago, February 21, and denied entry into the United States allegedly on "national security" grounds.

According to her daughter, Deidre, two INS officers threatened to arrest, jail, and even shoot the legendary civil rights campaigner when she arrived at Chicago's O'Hare airport.
