Legal immigrant arrested for being a foreigner |
"Jimmy Mote, a thirty-three old from Majuro, Marshall Islands, came to the United States legally twelve years ago with non-immigrant status, but when he went to apply for an ID card renewal, he was detained by police... According to Mr. Mote, a policeman told him that he looked like a terrorist... He lived and worked in the United States under provisions of the Compact of Free Association agreement between the United States and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, giving RMI citizens the right to enter into and establish residence as a non-immigrants without any set duration of stay. That was not enough for Mr. Jim Rumple, area supervisor for the Drivers License and Traffic Safety Division of the North Dakota Dept. of Transportation."
