CAIR Condemns Trump’s Call for End to Due Process Rights for Immigrants

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned Donald Trump’s call for an end to due process rights by deporting individuals with “no Judges or Court Cases.”

Trump Calls for Depriving Immigrants Who Illegally Cross Border of Due Process Rights

In a statement, CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said: “This clear call for an end to the constitutionally-guaranteed right to due process is symptomatic of an administration that disdains both the Constitution and our judicial system, and would subject those who cross our borders to the whims of unaccountable officials acting on the twisted logic of white supremacy and racism. All Americans should be outraged by this affront to our values and democracy.”

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.

La misión de CAIR es proteger las libertades civiles, mejorar la comprensión del Islam, promover la justicia, y empoderar a los musulmanes en los Estados Unidos.

    First, illegal immigrants don’t have any constitutionally-guaranteed rights, only US citizens have constitutional rights. Second, no one in this administration is acting out of feelings of white supremacy or racism. May I remind you, Muslims are of no particular race and to ban Muslims from illegally entering our nation is good common sense, Muslims are the only people randomly murdering our citizens and generally making a public nuisance of themselves. Stop twisting the facts CAIR, Islam is a serious problem for the US. Muslims have no reason to come to the US as they pose a significant danger to our citizens who do have the constitutional right to expect safety within their own homes. Third, there are no refugees, that lie has been long exposed so there exists no humanitarian reason to compromise our nations security over an invading army of jihadies!
