It’s a new effort to help those who have been racially profiled at border crossings.
The American Civil Liberties Union says the FBI has implemented new guidelines that will allow agents to profile individuals for searches based on race and ethnicity at borders across the United States. The Detroit branch of the NAACP, ACCESS, CAIR and ACLU Wednesday launched a new hotline to report issues.
Dawud Walid, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said since the September 11th terror attacks there’s been an increase in profiling, particularly focused on American Muslims at borders.
Walid claims personal property such as wallets and laptops have been taken from people, searched and — in some cases — have had information removed.
