Detroit Bans Police from Asking Immigration Status

Two days after the New Jersey Jihad arrests, in which three of the suspects were living illegally in the US for decades, the Detroit City Council has passed an ordinance making it illegal for police to ask residents about their immigration status: City Council approves ordinance to prohibit the profiling of immigrants.

An ordinance that bans profiling was approved Wednesday by the Detroit City Council. It prohibits police and city employees from asking about the immigration status of residents.

The council voted unanimously for the law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, dress, physical appearance and immigration status. Under the new law, police cannot ask people for their immigration papers unless it was related to a crime.

It’s another victory for the Hamas- and Saudi-linked radical Islamic front group calling itself the Council on American Islamic Relations.

The ordinance was introduced after talks with Latino, Arab and Muslim groups. The Detroit-based group Metropolitan Organizing Strategy Enabling Strength played a lead role in pushing for the law. ...

Dawud Walid, head of the Michigan branch of the Council of American-Islamic Relations, said he is pleased with the council’s vote. “The city of Detroit should be seen as a place that is not hostile to immigrants.”
