US customs targeting Muslim Americans at borders: group
American Muslims returning to the U.S. are being targeted for enhanced questioning, the head of Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) Florida bureau told Anadolu Agency on Wednesday.
"For years there have been reports of American Muslims detained by customs and questioned about their religious practice," Hassan Shibly said.
"However, in the last two weeks, we noticed a strong increase in members of the American Muslim community, who are U.S. citizens, being subjected to secondary inspection," he added, referring to an additional level of questioning some travelers are subjected to when they enter the U.S.
