Dearborn businessman sues feds over 'watch list'
by Mark Hicks
An Arab-American businessman from Dearborn is suing federal officials over his alleged inclusion on a government "watch list" he said violated his constitutional rights.
"We're just fighting for our God-given rights that the constitution guarantees us … and to make sure government doesn't become obtrusive and denies the rights of people without giving them the due process," said Nasser Beydoun, a Muslim and former chairman and director of Arab American Chamber of Commerce.
According to the complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court, Beydoun has been listed on a "selectee list" under the FBI's Terrorist Screening Center. That means he was "selected for secondary and additional screening at different domestic airports in the United States, and subjected to unwarranted and excessive delays at airports," the document read.
