MI: CHERTOFF TO VISIT MOSQUE TODAY
The head of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, is planning to visit a Shi’ite mosque in Dearborn today.
Chertoff is to visit the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center, department spokeswoman Veronica Valdes said. The mosque has a largely Iraqi-American congregation.
He will meet with the center’s imam, Husham Al-Husainy, and other religious leaders during a private meeting. This is the second meeting with local Muslim and Arab-American leaders that Chertoff has had in Michigan this year.
