Ahmed Mohamed, clockmaker, visits Congress as lawmaker calls for Justice Dept. investigation into arrest
by Sylvan Lane
Rep. Mike Honda, D-Calif., called Tuesday morning for the Justice Department to investigate the detainment and arrest of Ahmed Mohamed, the MacArthur High School freshman who brought a digital clock he reassembled to school.
"No student should face that kind of treatment," said Honda, a former educator and school administrator. "What should have happened didn't happen."
Ahmed, several members of his family and Ron Price–a former Dallas Independent School District trustee serving as a family adviser–joined Honda for a press conference.
