Florida Chapter of CAIR to American Muslims: Don't Answer Additional Questions at Inspection Points
In the wake of a controversial executive order signed by President Donald Trump halting refugees from specific nations entering the United States, one of the largest Muslim civil rights group is calling on all citizens observing the religion to refuse any additional questions they are asked when entering or exiting the country.
The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations issued a statement against the recent moves by the Trump administration, saying it continues to "disproportionately target American Muslim citizens."
CAIR-FL says all American citizens of the Muslim faith make up 50 to 75 percent of those selected for secondary inspection when traveling – despite being just one percent of the population. The organization encourages members to comply and be truthful with officials and give basic information when asked.
