Immigration, Muslims, terror, Gitmo
4 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode hit on several topics as they tried to solve an apparent suicide.

A woman was discovered and the medical examiner ruled that the suicide was staged.

The attention first focused on Ali Mohammad (Sanjit De Silva), a veteran of all four Law& Order franchises. He worked as a sound mixer on the woman's film, which was blasphemous according to his religion. Detective Cassady (Milena Govich) really pushed his buttons, and did the best job I have seen her do.

Then the focus was on Julio Rodriguez (Reza Salazar), and the issue turned to illegal immigrants. A.D.A. Rubirosa (Alana De La Garza) got upset over this, and the whole issue of illegal immigration became the focus.

Guantanamo and terrorism come out in the mix, but all the yelling over these issues was moot when they discovered the murder was the result of good old American greed.
