Wadi Gad - Eloy Detention Center

Wadi Gad - Eloy Detention Center
October 21, 2010 03:39AM
Wadi Gad was on my mind today.

I decided to do some web searching to find out more of what is going on with his INS problems.

I haven't been in touch with him since his arrest, so I don't know the facts around his case. I did dig up this address though. The person that posted it said to write to him and give support.

(This is the corrected address)

Carlyle Daniel
Alien#72268553
Eloy Detention Center
1705 E.Hanna Rd.
Eloy, Arizona 85131

(This is the corrected address)

I then did a search for Eloy Detention Center and found this: (Babylon at it's worst! A prision for profit.)

Link to Video Report About Eloy Detention Center

Fullest support to Wadi. SNWMF won't be the same without reasoning with Wadi in the parking lot of Discovery Inn.

i went to see don carlos for my 16th birthday eight years ago and meet wadi gad in parking lot after he gave me a free cd in front of the whole show and said "always big up the youth". Big up Wadi Gad and send him praises.

How come he ended up there? in any case he needs 100 letters by November 1st. I am writing mine now.

PLEASE WRITE A LETTER ON BEHALF OF BROTHER WADI GAD STAYING IN UNITED STATES

please write a letter via snail mail regarding keeping brother Wadi Gad in America!

sample letter:

To: Eloy Detention Center 1705 E. Hanna Rd. Eloy, AZ 85231
attn: Carlyle Daniel E207

To Whom It May Concern;
I am writing on behalf of Brother Wadi Gad (Carlyle Daniel) who I understand is being held by the INS and may face deportation.

I am the publisher of the world’s oldest and largest reggae magazine, called THE REGGAE FESTIVAL GUIDE (www.reggaefestivalguide.com) which educates and entertains people all over the United States and Canada about the importance and the spiritual aspect of reggae music. The magazine can also be seen around the globe through our digital edition. Wadi Gad graced the cover of our magazine several years ago.

I am also the publicist for Renegade Productions, Northern California’s premier concert company. www.renegadeshows.com

For the past 20 years, through my involvement with the above mentioned companies, I have worked with Wadi Gad many, many times. He is one of the hardest working musicians in the industry. He has a solo career but also backs numerous musicians who are on tour. I have ridden long distances in cars with Wadi going to festivals or home from a gig. I have talked to him many times on the phone. I know most of his friends. I see him over and over again at concerts and festivals where he is performing or networking.

He is a gentle, soft-spoken spiritual person that is much needed in our industry on the west coast. Please do not send him away from his home, friends and family. He must be about the same age as me and it is hard to start over. He is established here and welcome here.
Respectfully
Kaati
Publisher
Reggae Festival Guide/RBA Publishing

PLEASE PICK UP A PEN AND PAPER AND MAIL YOUR LETTER TODAY! WE WANT 100 LETTERS TO REACH THERE BEFORE NOVEMBER 1.

Sending my letter out TODAY! Please send yours as well!

To: Eloy Detention Center 1705 E. Hanna Rd. Eloy, AZ 85231
attn: Carlyle Daniel E207

To Whom It May Concern;
I am writing on behalf of Brother Wadi Gad (Carlyle Daniel) who I understand is being held by the INS and may face deportation.

I am a wife and a mother of two children and I have known Wadi Gad for at least 15 years. I was a concert producer, promoter, and publicist for many years and worked with Wadi Gad on several occasions. I have had nothing but good and productive experiences with him and hold him in high regard. He is a prominent Elder in our community who is well respected and looked up to. My young son who is 4 years old greets him every time we see him and says he wants to be a drummer just like Wadi Gad.

I am aware of the politics in Arizona regarding immigration laws. I understand how the rest of the country views the current situation in Arizona which convinces me that Wadi Gad may very well be at a severe disadvantage there in your states care. I would like to insist that he be treated fairly and that his religious rights be observed and respected in a court of law until he is released and rightly returned to his home here in California where he has established a huge community of family and colleagues.
We are counting on seeing Wadi Gad back at home in our community where he belongs. Many people depend and count on his presence and contribution in our community and we cannot rest until he is released as soon as possible.

Sincerely,
Lisa Orchard

Eloy is right between Tucson and Phoenix on 1-10. When I was at school there in the early 90's, we used to make that drive a lot. If you are heading North from Tucson, Eloy is about 30 minutes and to the north, slightly of 1-10 , right before Casa Grande. I haven't been there in a while, but I'm sure they now have all kindz of state police troopers hooped up on hormones patrolling 1-10 like a bunch of vampires. Did Wadi have any shows in Phoenix or Tucson lately? If he played in Tucson, my brother Papa Ranger down at at Twelve Tribes would know the details:

But I say... Some Never Even Plant yet want to Reap,
If you run, be careful, try to look before you leap;
Took a little walk from my Vineyard...
Now I'm on my own
Now I'm left alone..
