'After her stint in Houston, the Israeli art student was
transferred to New York City for a two-week "holiday." However, she
and her group were ordered by their superiors to be "out of the
city" on September 11, 2001.
The Israeli woman was granted access to the United States on
a student visa and she was identified as an "art student" in her visa
application. It was later discovered that none of the Israeli "art
students" were, in fact, art students. Those detained as a result of a
joint investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Marshal's
Service, and other federal law enforcement agencies were simply deported to
Israel without facing a trial for wrongly stating their purpose for coming to
the United States.'
