CAIR: Refusing Refugee Admissions Is Equivalent To Slavery
by Alex Pfeiffer
The executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said Wednesday that refusing to accept Muslim refugees is the moral equivalent of slavery.
CAIR held a press conference in anticipation of executive orders from President Donald Trump to limit refugee entry from several Muslim-majority countries, block federal funds from sanctuary cities and start construction of a wall on America's southern border.
Nihad Awad, CAIR's national executive director, called the proposed border wall a "multi-billion dollar monument to racism." Awad went on to say that President Trump's proposal has nothing to do with national security and is strictly an "Islamophobic" proposal.
