Hamp Residents Rally For Immigrant

There's support for a Western  Massachusetts man who is facing deportation. 

Several-hundred individuals  protested at Northampton City Hall yesterday on behalf of Niberd  Abdalla, who is from Iraq but who has lived in the U.S. for nearly four  decades. 

Abdalla originally came to the country as a teenager escaping  persecution when Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath party was fighting Kurdish  rebellions. 

The ACLU won a stay of deportation for Niberd and about  15-hundred other Iraqis who face deportation recently, but the stay  expires on July 24th.
