“We condemn this attempt to instill fear on a college campus, a place that is supposed to be a safe haven for students,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “Unfortunately, our nation is experiencing a growing white supremacist menace that must be challenged by Americans of all faiths and backgrounds.”
Hooper said CAIR has reported an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims, immigrants and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as president.
