Afghan refugee talks about his detainment in Texas: 'I am asking for equal rights'

Ahmad Fahim Majeed arrived in Texas back in September and has been held in the Eden Detention Center ever since. His sister lives in Tempe and is a refugee herself. Majeed says he's the only Afghan in the detention center. Court documents confirm Majeed was apprehended by a border patrol agent on September 30, 2022, near Eagle Pass, Texas for failure to comply with reporting requirements when entering the U.S. He says he has limited access to the shared phone but can usually call his sister and family friend, Nathaly Correa, in Tempe once a day.
