What Is Ziglar v. Abbasi?

Soon after 9/11, the INS and FBI arrested hundreds of men as terrorism suspects based mostly on a stereotypical profile of a terrorist at the time: Muslim and foreign. One of the men detained is Benamar Benatta, whom I filmed on the steps of the US Supreme Court on the day his case was heard. Benamar was held for nearly five years in a maximum security cell where he was viciously beaten and treated awfully before being released five years later. The Center for Constitutional Rights asked me to help spread the word about this court case and its significance through a brief video designed for social media. This is what I came up with.
