CAIR demands Department of Homeland Security revise or drop report urging authorities to target Sunni Muslims in American for long-term profiling.

The email for this article was deactivated after DHS declined to revise the report.

Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) issued a press release titled “CAIR Calls on DHS to Revise or Drop Report Targeting Muslim Immigrants, Residents with Long-Term Profiling and Surveillance.”  The release states in part:

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to revise or drop a draft report that initially urged authorities to target Sunni Muslim legal immigrants and permanent residents for long-term religious profiling and surveillance.

The draft report, produced at the request of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan, stated that there would be “great value for the United States Government in dedicating resources to continuously evaluate persons of interest” and suggesting that immigrants to the United States be tracked on a “long-term basis.”

In the report, CBP identifies Sunni Muslim American residents as being potentially “vulnerable to terrorist narratives,” based on a set of risk indicators, such as being young, male, and having national origins in “the Middle East, South Asia or Africa.” A CBP spokesperson told Foreign Policy that the report is a “first draft” that is undergoing revisions.

The Council on American Islamic Relations has no credibility to demand that a report which is intended to prevent terrorism be revised or dropped given its terror links and associations with the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.  Many Council on American Islamic Relations' officials have been sentenced to prison and/or deported for supporting terrorism.  The United Arab Emirates’ ministerial cabinet listed the Council on American-Islamic Relations as one of 83 banned terrorist organizations on November 15, 2014.
