NPR's Greg Allen reports on the Muslim community in Patterson, New Jersey, and those in the community who are fighting to free the many Arab-Americans being detained by the government since the September 11th terrorist attacks. There's a sense of anxiety, anger, and frustration that Muslim Americans are being deprived of their constitutionally guaranteed civil rights, because of their religious faith and countries of origin.
