A Muslim civil rights group says federal agents are wrongly detaining and questioning Muslim-Americans coming into the U-S.
The Michigan Council on American-Islamic Relations lays out those accusations in a federal lawsuit filed this week.
They’re suing on behalf of four Muslim U-S citizens. All say they were subject to “invasive religious questioning” when they tried to re-enter the country from Canada.
Shareef Akeel is a lawyer for the plaintiffs. He says Muslims are clearly being singled out for this type of "persecution," and that’s illegal.
