(FARMINGTON HILLS, MI) – On Monday, April 23, the Council on American-Islamic Relatins Michigan (CAIR-MI) will hold a press conference to discuss the release of the 2018 Civil Rights Report.
Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, will release a one-of-its-kind report showing ‘concrete evidence’ that Trump’s Muslim Ban resulted in increased anti-Muslim discrimination and violence across the United States in the past year.
CAIR’s 2018 civil rights report will outline hundreds of anti-Muslim bias incidents in 2017 and indicate how many were related to the Trump administration’s unconstitutional “Muslim Ban” executive orders. The new report, titled “Targeted,”
will also document the increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents and hate crimes in 2017 over the previous year.
CAIR said the anti-Muslim hate incidents documented in the report are shocking and indictment of the Trump administration and its unconstitutional policies based on religious animus.
