CAIR Now Fighting To Get Rid Of Terror Watch List

Alleged discrimination. There’s probably 90% of the terrorist watch list that is comprised of CAIR members. Should CAIR be under permanent surveillance?

The Muslim organization Council on American-Islamic Relations plans to challenge the U.S. over terror watch list system in federal court on the behalf of more than 10 Muslim travelers who allege they faced harassment at airports and suffered other consequences because of being placed on a terror watch list.

Gadeir Abbas, a senior litigation attorney with the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the group will file the lawsuit Wednesday in federal court in Greenbelt, Maryland, on behalf of more than 10 Muslim travelers who allege they faced harassment at airports and suffered other consequences because of being placed on a terror watch list. The plaintiffs are from Maryland, Florida, Michigan, Oregon, Kansas, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Abbas said the defendants named in the lawsuit will include the Department of Homeland Security, the Transportation Security Administration, and other government agencies.

The suit claims the travelers’ due process rights were violated and asks the court to grant an injunction to “prevent the federal government from putting innocent people, people who have not been charged, arrested or convicted of any crime, on any type of watch list,” Abbas said. More
