Thread: Muslims Demand Even Easier Immigration

  1. #1
    Guest
    Muslims have urged the United States not to hinder
    immigration from Islamic countries because, they say, it would only aid
    those wanting to widen the gulf between the Islamic and the Western worlds.

    However, the Christian Science Monitor reported Monday that even though
    many Americans after 9/11 called for tighter immigration enforcement and
    border controls. "the flow of immigrants, legal and illegal, into the
    United States appears to have fallen only barely." The U.S. "still draws
    many from Mideast."

    "It remains at record levels," said Steven Camarota, research director of
    Center for Immigration Studies, a think tank in Washington.

    Muslims have been reacting to a Justice Department directive asking male
    visitors from 13 additional countries to show up for fingerprinting and
    questioning at immigration offices nationwide starting Dec. 2.

    Since 12 of the countries are Muslim, the move has increased the worries of
    American Muslims already living in a difficult environment since the
    terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

    More Cries of 'Profiling'

    "This is profiling. It is just a way to put a halt to immigration from the
    Muslim countries," said Faiz Rehman, communication director for American
    Muslim Council, an umbrella organization representing dozens of Muslim
    groups across the United States.

    "The new immigration policy is only targeting Muslim countries."
