Meeting to Discuss Class Action Lawsuit Against DHS


CAIR-Chicago met with the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois (ACLU-Illinois), the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago (CIOGC), and the Muslim Bar Association (MBA) to discuss an ACLU class action law suit against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for their inadequate policies concerning the reentry of Muslim U.S. citizens from abroad into the U.S., when those citizens have names similar to someone else on a government watch list.

The class action law suit stems from an ACLU suit filed on behalf of a man that was detained four times in a fifteen month period, each for two or more hours, including a six-hour detention in which the complainant was shackled to a chair for three hours. CAIR-Chicago, the CIOGC, and the MBA are assisting the ACLU in outreaching to the Muslim community in search of similar incidents. If you are a United States citizen who has been detained for more than one hour upon reentry to the United States, please call Adam Schwartz of the ACLU of Illinois at (312) 201-9740, or contact CAIR-Chicago at civilrights@cairchicago.org.
