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.
A Muslim civil rights organization said Tuesday it plans to file a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the federal government’s terror watch list system, including a newly disclosed program in which air marshals have secretly monitored air passengers with no known terrorism links.
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
@Suntimes CAIR is NOT a civil rights organization. is Hamas. CAIR has proven ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. CAIR’s “leadership” were employees and/or officers with the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), which was raising money in the U.S. for Hamas. https://t.co/0NkwUMaPdR

Just how many ‘Degrees of Separation’ is there between CAIR and the Islamist terror cell recently arrested in New Mexico, where they were hoping to train children to go and commit school shootings?
