Christina Fialho Discusses Discrimination Against Muslims in Immigration Detention

Since 9/11, the federal government has relied heavily on immigration law and policy to prosecute the so-called “War on Terror.” Because the process of arresting someone under immigration law rather than criminal law has fewer checks and balances, the federal government has abused the immigration legal system in a way that discriminates against Muslim immigrants. CIVIC, with its partner organizations such as the Islamic Shura Council, stand beside Muslim immigrants. Learn more about the detention of Muslim immigrants in this 10-minute talk given by CIVIC’s Christina Fialho to the Islamic Shura Council of Southern California.
