Muslim inmates in Miami-Dade County denied Halal meals, civil rights groups say
Two civil rights groups claim Muslim inmates at Miami-Dade County jails haven't been fed meals in accordance with Islamic law.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida and Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida said Wednesday the organizations have received more than 35 complaints from inmates since the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department began serving non-Halal meals to Muslim inmates.
Both organizations claim the county's jail facilities stopped serving non-Halal meals in October 2014, in violation of its faith-based meals policy.
