King: Muslim Groups Complain About Harassment, Surveillance When Asked to Help Fight ISIS
by Bridget Johnson
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) charged that all U.S. Muslim groups are doing is "complain about the fact that they're being harassed and they're being surveilled" as they need to step forward and help stop jihadi recruitment on U.S. soil.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said in a brief statement Friday that the group "engaged with DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson during two separate meetings focused on the Obama administration's new countering violent extremism (CVE) program in New York."
"CAIR officials met previously with the secretary on the same issue in both Minneapolis and Los Angeles."
