CAIR-CHICAGO TO RELEASE REPORT ON U.S. MUSLIM CIVIL RIGHTS


Annual study shows jump in complaints about citizenship delays


(CHICAGO, IL, 6/18/07) -On Tuesday, June 19, the Chicago office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago) will hold a news conference to release its 12th annual report, titled "Presumption of Guilt," on the status of Muslim civil rights in the United States.

The Washington-based Islamic civil rights and advocacy group's report - the only annual study of its kind - will show a significant increase in complaints related to immigration issues such as citizenship delays.

WHAT: CAIR to Release Annual Report on Status of American Muslim Civil Rights
WHEN: Tuesday, June 18, 11:00 a.m. (Central)
WHERE: Downtown Islamic Center, 231 S. State Street, 3rd Floor, Chicago, IL
CONTACT: Ahmed Rehab, Executive Director (847) 971-3963 or (312) 212-1520 director@cairchicago.org; Reem Rahman, Communications Coordinator communications@cairchicago.org

Nine states and the District of Columbia accounted for almost 81 percent of all civil rights complaints to CAIR in 2006. The second-highest percentage of reports came from Illinois, comprising 13% of the total.

CAIR, America's largest Islamic civil liberties group, began documenting anti-Muslim incidents following the 1995 attack on the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Its mission is to promote justice, enhance the understanding of Islam and empower American Muslims.
