Ask NJ Senate to Pass Bill that Prevents Out-of-State Surveillance 

CAIR-logo(South Plainfield, NJ, 6/17/2013) - The New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-NJ) is calling on all New Jersey residents that value their right to privacy and reject religious profiling to contact their state senator about a bill (Bill A-2984) introduced to address the controversial surveillance program of the NYPD that specifically targeted Muslims. The bill has already passed the General Assembly and is currently in the Senate. 

The bill resulted from a series of articles in the Associated Press that the NYPD was operating secretly within New Jersey, monitoring Islamic Centers, Muslim businesses, and Muslim student organizations.
