Breaking: CAIR To File Federal Lawsuit Against Trump’s ‘Muslim Ban’

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) posted Friday on their website that they will be holding a news conference on Monday, January 30th to announce that they are filing a federal lawsuit against Trump’s ‘Muslim ban’.

CAIR’s lawyers made several absurd statements regarding the ‘refugees’ and here are a few of the gems…

“There is no evidence that refugees – the most thoroughly vetted of all people entering our nation – are a threat to national security,” said CAIR National Litigation Director Lena F. Masri, Esq. “This is an order that is based on bigotry, not reality.”

“The courts must do what President Trump will not—ensure that our government refrains from segregating people based on their faith,” said Attorney Gadeir Abbas, Esq., who is co-counsel on the lawsuit.

“Our First Amendment is under attack. We, as attorneys, are foot soldiers of the American Constitution and took an oath to protect all from being targeted by the government because of their faith,” said Attorney Shereef Akeel, Esq., who is also co-counsel on the lawsuit.

CAIR’s claims that refugees are thoroughly vetted are simply untrue. It is impossible to thoroughly vet these ‘refugees’ and our own FBI and DHS have admitted this. Watch FBI Director James Comey testify in front of a Homeland Security committee admitting we cannot properly vet Syrian refugees here.

Donald Trump’s so-called ‘Muslim ban’ is not an attack on the First Amendment. As President, his priority is to protect the American citizens. Refugees are responsible for the rape epidemic sweeping across Europe. We do not owe Constitutional rights and citizenship to refugees or migrants from Syria or any other Islamic nation. Furthermore, Islam is a totalitarian political movement masquerading as a religion in order to exploit our First Amendment.

Thousands of Americans have been killed by Islamic terrorism since 9/11. In fact, the attacks are happening so frequently in Western countries, it’s becoming the ‘new norm’. The U.S. has banned or severely restricted immigration from many countries throughout history for various reasons, so Trump’s Executive Order falls in line with many of our previous President’s decisions.

CAIR is also an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas funding case. Read about that case here.

I reached out to CAIR on Twitter and asked them if they denounced the Quran’s call to kill or subjugate me as a non-Muslim and below was their response…
