Michigan Muslims fear backlash from campaign rhetoric
by Natasha Dado
Muslims in Metro Detroit say they worry some anti-terrorism proposals that emerged during this year's contentious presidential campaign could violate the Constitution and cast suspicion on the Arab-American community.
The debate over the best way to protect the United States from terror is being watched closely in the Detroit area, which has one of the largest Arab-American populations in the country.
Advocates for the Muslim community say they don't like what they see from the GOP side, particularly from billionaire businessman Donald Trump, who is now the presumptive Republican nominee after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich dropped out of the race last week.
