Representatives of several American Muslim groups met
recently with House Majority Leader Rep. Tom DeLay (R-TX) to begin a
dialogue with the growing Islamic community in his district.
Groups participating in the meeting included the Muslim American
Republican Caucus, Pakistan American congress, Islamic Society of Greater
Houston, Pakistan Council of Texas, and the Houston office of the Council

meeting,” said CAIR-Houston Executive Director Iesa Galloway.
Galloway said DeLay expressed interest in attending future local Muslim events.
