The ACLU, NAACP and Reform Immigration for America are non-Islamic organizations, which recognize that this bill could encroach on the constitutional rights of all Americans, and at its core, is based in bigotry.
As I’ve noted, every bill or ballot initiative across the country such as this that has been proposed in approximately 20 states across America have been introduced by White folks, who are Tea Party acolytes within the GOP. Moreover, these same persons are also supporters of Arizona copycat immigration bills that invite racial profiling of minorities.
Beyond this bill, the question is can moderates within the GOP succeed in taking back the party of Abraham Lincoln from those within it such as Newt Gingrich, Michelle Bachman, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) and Mujahideen Khalq terrorism supporter Rudy Giuliani, who use xenophobia and Islamophobia as a political strategy?
