Today from the Craig Fahle Show:
Director of Alliance for Immigrants Rights and Reform Ryan Bates, Christian Ramirez, Human Rights Director at Alliance San Diego and the Executive Director of the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Dawud Walid will join Craig to discuss the Civil Rights Audit that was requested by eleven members of Congress.
The Civil Rights Audit for FBI Customs Enforcement and ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) is relating to accusations of religious profiling and mistreatment. The investigation is the result of nearly two years of complaints.
The New York Police Department is just “mimicking the behavior of the FBI” by spying on the Muslim community, says Dawud Walid, executive director of CAIR-MI.
In a phone interview with Press TV’s U.S. Desk on Sunday, Walid said the Federal Bureau for Investigation is criticizing the New York police for “spying on Muslim community, spying on restaurants and barbershops” … while itself is “engaged in same way activity”. He said the NYPD spying on the Muslim community “is the symptom of a bigger disease” because it is mimicking the behavior of the FBI.
He said the FBI’s criticism of the NYPD is somehow “hypocritical”.
On Wednesday, the FBI criticized the NYPD for eavesdropping on Muslim businesses saying that “People are concerned that they’re being followed. They’re concerned that they can’t trust law enforcement, and it’s having a negative impact”.
The surveillance of Muslims has been harshly criticized by Muslims, civic and university leaders as an unconstitutional invasion of privacy.
I’m schedule to be on the Charlie Langton Show on 1270 AM in Detroit from 8:30am to 9am on Tuesday morning to discuss the FBI ditching some of its anti-Muslim training material.
