Yes, Ann, this is the US.
The young muslim daughters who want to live free and marry who they want–ETC–may be the only chance islam has to join the civilized world. These young women need help and protection.
There are dozens of reports in publications around the world about the case of a missing San Antonio teen, Maarib al-Hishmawi, now found alive and well in the care of an unnamed organization that protected her.
She went into hiding because she didn’t want to go through with an arranged marriage (this is the United States!) and she reported she suffered physical abuse by her parents because of her refusal to essentially be sold to a man she didn’t know for $20,000. (Did I mention that this is the United States!).

I read several stories on the case and note that some, including the Washington Post, skirted the subject of just how this family came to live in the US in the first place.
