Please support Justin “Kutmah” McNulty 
in his deportation defense.
He is facing immediate deportation unless 
we can reopen his case and show the 
authorities how vital it is for Justin to stay in our lives. 
This vibrant artist, dj and producer is a 
beloved member of the Los Angeles creative 
community. Help Kutmah remain in the United States!
Kutmah was born in the UK to an Egyptian
 mother and Scottish father. He moved to the 
US with his mother when he was 12 years old.
 They immediately applied for residency to keep 
them from being sent to Egypt. As a British citizen
 the court ruled that he would be able to live in the 
UK which in their eyes wasn’t such a bad place. 
They denied their application. Kutmah and his Mom 
returned to court to plead their case 14 years ago 
when Kutmah was 20. They were again denied a 
green card and were urged to sign a document stating
 they would voluntary leave the US.
On Wednesday morning, May 5th armed Immigration 
agents entered Kutmah’s house and detained him. 
He was brought to a facility in downtown LA where 
he was interrogated. On Thursday he was moved to
 an INS detention facility in New Mexico and can be 
expelled from the country at any moment. We need to 
show how important Kutmah is to the LA and US community.

To Whom it May Concern:
Justin McNulty is a highly talented artist, DJ and 
music producer who is a beloved member of the
 Los Angeles creative community.
For well over a decade he has devoted his substantial
 skills to the betterment of our community through 
positive, artistic actions.
Mr. McNulty has selflessly donated his time and 
exceptional talents to numerous charitable and 
non-profit causes. He has garnered worldwide
 acclaim through these efforts based in the United States.
Mr. McNulty’s individual community arts service is a 
testament to modern philanthropy. In an age when
 institutional funding is slim he has taken personal 
action to better our country by inspiring its citizens through
 progressive cultural outreach.
I fully support Justin McNulty’s right to stay in the 
United States and urge your positive and swift action
 in this matter. His deportation would be a devastating 
loss to Los Angeles and the American arts.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
