Could U.S. Officials Please Treat a Nobel Peace Laureate with Respect?

0

Less than a month ago, in late July, 2009, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire ( http://www.peacepeople.com/ ) was travelling from Dublin, Ireland to Albuquerque, New Mexico to meet Peace Laureate Jody Williams to participate in peace events there. As she arrived at Dulles airport near Washington, DC, from Ireland on July 30, 2009, she passed through the regular immigration line, but then was detained in a special processing area over two hours causing her to miss her connecting flight to Albuquerque.
