Arranged marriages in Michigan

A reader from Dearborn writes;

We have a very large population of immigrants from the Middle East, many of whom are Muslims. Marrying off daughters who do not do well in school by the age of 16 is not uncommon. Of course, this is arranged by dad. In addition, some of the dad's accept a dowry for one of their daughters while visiting the home land. Dearborn schools are constantly on the alert for kidnappings uniting school girls with their unknown future husbands in the Middle East. These girls don't have a choice. Wake up, Steve, and join the 16th century! It's as if we have sharia (Muslim law) in Dearborn.
