Muslim Advocates Releases Report – “Unreasonable Intrusions: Investigating the Politics, Faith & Finances of Americans Returning Home”
The report contains dozens of stories of individuals who have shared with Muslim Advocates their experiences when returning home from overseas travel. These experiences have taken place at land crossings and international airports – from San Francisco to New York, Detroit to Houston. These Americans are young, old, male, female, a firefighter, military veterans, students, lawyers, doctors, senior executives with major high tech companies, and academic researchers at Ivy League institutions.
Questions asked include: “What is your religion?” “What mosque do you attend?” “How often do you pray?” “What do you think of the war in Iraq?” “What charities do you contribute to?”
These are just some examples of the deeply personal information that government agents are prying from innocent Americans. This assertion of power not only infringes fundamental constitutional rights and protections but undermines our nation’s security.
What can be done? Our report sets forth a comprehensive set of solutions for the President and Congress. These solutions strike the right balance in upholding our nation’s founding values and keeping our nation safe and secure.
We encourage you to read our report and share it with your friends and colleagues. We look forward to working with you to combat this unjust and ineffective practice.
