Islamic group calls for protection following statements from Oklahoma lawmaker
Officials from the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations on Tuesday said they will "seek protection" following comments from an Oklahoma lawmaker.
The group has called a news conference for 1 p.m. Wednesday in front of Oklahoma Republican Party headquarters, 4031 N Lincoln Blvd.
The move comes after a town meeting Monday night in Sallisaw where state Rep. John Bennett said he would not back down from comments he made suggesting people should be wary of Muslim Americans.
