“Islamic group slams feds for detaining Muslims returning from Canada,” from WND, with thanks to EPG:
The American Civil Liberties Union and Council on American-Islamic Relations are teaming up today to decry what they see as a federal screening process that discriminates against Muslim Americans.
The two groups, along with the New York Civil Liberties Union, plan simultaneous news conferences today “to announce action against the Department of Homeland Security over the practice of targeting American citizens participating in religious conferences outside the United States,” said a statement.
According to the release, in December, dozens of American Muslim citizens were detained, interrogated, fingerprinted and photographed at the Buffalo-Canadian border as they returned home from an annual Islamic conference in Toronto.
CAIR members have been linked with terror and the funding of terrorism on several occasions. As WorldNetDaily reported, a founder of the Texas chapter of the group was found guilty last week of supporting terrorism.
Those facts and many more reported here from time to time about CAIR suggest what may really be behind CAIR’s opposition to anti-terror procedures of this kind.
