Mohamed
Soumah,
a
University of Michigan custodian,
is currently seeking refuge in
the Ann Arbor Friends Meeting
House to avoid deportation — he
requires frequent dialysis due to
a genetic kidney disease, and says
he will die if deported.
Soumah has lived in the U.S. for
15 years after immigrating from
Guinea, and has been employed
with no past criminal history. He
was married to a U.S. citizen with
whom he has two children, who
are also both citizens. Following
their divorce, which invalidated
the
protection
granted
by

marrying
a
citizen,
Soumah
has applied and been approved
annually for U.S. work visas.
In an interview with MLive,
Soumah said Guinea lacks the
necessary equipment and training
to provide him with dialysis three
times per week.
“If I get deported, I will die,” he
told MLive. “My mom died from
the same disease seven years ago.”
The condition Soumah has
cannot be treated with medication
and his only options are a kidney
transplant or frequent dialysis, a
retired University physician also
told MLive.

For
Public
Policy
senior
Lauren
Schandevel,
creating
a minorfocused on the study of
socioeconomic class was a project
that spanned her undergraduate
career — it’s now finally coming
to fruition. The proposed minor
of class and inequality studies
recently passed a faculty vote in
the Women’s Studies Department
and is awaiting approval from the
LSA Curriculum Committee.
Schandevel
first
had
the
idea for an area of study on
class during a discussion with
Sociology Lecturer Dwight Lang
three years ago. Since then, she
has teamed up with students and
faculty to draft the proposal. If
the minor is approved, it would be
the first study of social class at a
university in the U.S., according to
Schandevel.
“We did a lot of research when
we were drafting the proposal

Over
111,700
were
in
attendance
this
Saturday
to watch the University of
Michigan
football
team
steamroll Penn State. Ben van
der Pluijm, professor of Geology,
is interested in a different kind of
waves made at the Big House this
year, though: he’s leading a new
initiative called the Michigan
Shake Project, recording and
analyzing the seismic activity
that results from crowd response
at Michigan football games.

Researchers at the University
of Michigan are involved in a new
national collaborative effort aimed
at understanding the problem of
harmful algae blooms. While U-M
researchers will focus on the algae
blooms in Lake Erie, their research
will apply to the other Great Lakes
and freshwater sources around the
world.
