Iraqi immigrant beaten within inch of her life
EL CAJON, CA (BDCi) – – A 32-year-old Iraqi immigrant was found beaten into unconsciousness in her home in El Cajon after receiving a threatening note warning her to “go back to Iraq,” officials said.

Shaima Alawadi is not expected to survive her injuries, according to the El Cajon police.

Her 17-year-old daughter found Alawadi unconscious in the dining room Wednesday morning, with the note near her body, police said. The family reported receiving a similar note days earlier, police said.

Alawadi was taken to a local hospital. Police believe the beating to be “an isolated incident,” not part of a pattern of attacks.

The suburbs east of San Diego have been a popular destination for Iraqi immigrants, particularly Iraqi Christians.
