US government needs to “end its partnership with the ISI in repressing the Balochi people, Rohrabacher

WASHINGTON: US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has written a letter to the Secretary for Homeland Security Janet Napolitano asking why Noordin Mengal, a member of Peoples Organisation for Balochistan was denied entry to the US in 2008. In a press release titled “Rep. Rohrabacher to DHS: Don’t Use Visas as Political Weapon Against Balochs (sic)” that was sent from his DC press office, the Republican Congressman has mentioned that Noordin Mengal, a British Citizen, was also denied visa to the US in 2010 to address a university event on human rights in Balochistan. In his letter, Rep. Rohrabacher said that Noordin Mengal had been denied entry at Newark’s Liberty Airport in 2008, and was subsequently “put on a flight out of the US.”
