MUSLIM BAKERSFIELD FAMILY UPSET OVER VEGAS AIRPORT INCIDENT
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — A Bakersfield woman hoping for a reunion with her father visiting from Germany says he was the victim of anti-Muslim discrimination.
Magiah Shehadeh said her father — who is Muslim and lives in Germany — was interrogated for more than 12 hours at the Las Vegas airport Thursday. She said her father, Majed, was prevented from taking his heart medication and sent back to Germany.
The Southern California chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations is asking Customs and Border Protection and the FBI for answers.
