Muslims protest treatment at Peace Arch border
A group of American Muslims rallied at the Peace Arch border crossing Sunday to protest perceived mistreatment and racial profiling by government employees.
The demonstration was organized by Jeff Siddiqui, a Washington State realtor and member of the American Muslims of Puget Sound, who says fear of Muslims remains even a decade after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Muslims are routinely threatened, harassed and humiliated by border agents, Siddiqui says, and sometimes detained for hours.
