Muslim Advocates want DOJ and DHS to withdraw report on immigrant terrorism

Posted by Ann Corcoran on April 23, 2018

This case filed in a California court (where else!) comes on the eve of the US Supreme Court hearing on the so-called Trump Muslim ban case scheduled to be heard this Wednesday.

See Reuters here for: Trump’s travel ban faces U.S. Supreme Court showdown.

Following is the news about the DHS/DOJ report that accompanied the ban and the case filed in California attempting to force the feds to withdraw the report.

From Northern California Record:

Muslim Advocates seek retraction of inflammatory report released by federal government

LOS ANGELES – Attorneys for Muslim Advocates recently filed a lawsuit with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the United States departments of Justice and Homeland Security regarding a recent report they claim is another step in President Donald Trump’s” anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant agenda.”

“If left uncorrected, the report is likely to contribute to this increase in violence and stigmatization experienced by Muslim communities,” reads an excerpt from the complaint.

The plaintiffs claim the report does not comply with the Information Quality and the Administrative Procedure acts because it “misrepresents the threat that immigrants, especially Muslim immigrants, pose to the United States.” The group wants the report retracted.

At this point in your reading, you might be asking: what is this report and where can I find it!  (Why not link to it in this news story?)  You can find it here. Probably best to download it before they can force its withdrawal.

Muslim Advocates, a civil rights organization, works to fight stereotypes about Muslim and ensure that national laws are not discriminatory toward Muslims. The Muslim Advocates claim that the recently released report, which was published in an executive order, includes Trump’s second attempt to ban Muslims from entering America.

The complaint alleges that the report is filled with misleading and incorrect information and will have significant impacts by perpetuating a stigma against Muslim that could lead to more of the violence against Muslims. The group claims the increase in violence against Muslims began when Trump began his presidency.

Attorney for Muslim Advocates: Sirene Shebaya

The complaint states that the report calls to end visas for families to reunite and “manipulates information to support its anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim conclusions,” such as allegedly using irrelevant and debunked studies on violence toward women and analyzing terrorism incidents done by foreign-born Americans.

“The Trump Administration has used the report to justify its sweeping ban on the entry of nationals from six Muslim-majority countries into the United States,” the plaintiffs said.

The Muslim Advocates are suing for the DOJ and DHS to stop distribution of the report, and for the court to find the report fails to meet the guidelines of fair and objective information. The group also seeks declaratory and injunctive relief in the form of attorneys’ fees and related costs.

  1. These people like Shebaya to try to pretend that the white population is attacking Muslims is appearing to be the poor totally innocent refugees all anyone has to do is look at what has happened to the EU especially the past three years the European population have been attacked, killed, raped while the government as well as well as the local politicians along with all police departments ignore what is going on. Many of the Jews that live the EU countries have left for Israel the past three years if a person can’t even walk down a street in peace without being attacked simply because of their religion what can they do but leave for a place they consider safer than where they are. This Shebaya is using our own laws against us this is a tactic of the Muslim Brother using their front group Cair to do the talking this is how they intend to take over the USA in the future. These stupid politicians as well as the left wing judges will help it along.

  2. When has there been “an increase in violence against muslims” as the advocates claim? All we have seen is violence against non-muslims!!

    What part needs correcting? Is there something untrue about the report? How is the “violence and stigmatization experienced by Muslim communities” more egregious than the violence and stigmatization experienced by non-Mulsim communities at the hands of Islamic radicals? Why is it okay for non-Muslims to be blown up, stabbed, run over, etc., by Muslims? This is pretty violent, and it’s specifically geared towards infidels because Islam stigmatizes infidels. It’s a core doctrine. So, what about that? Why does this lawyer not come to the defense of defenseless infidels who are stigmatized by Islamic doctrine?

    Ok one question please, can you also provide a report where Americans have committed terrorists attacks against Muslims here in USA. I dont believe we have a problem with citizens attacking with violence or organizing hate filled attacks on their enclaves. There is no reverse of this argument as they claim. Americans are not blowing up their neighborhoods or beating them in the streets and running them over with cars. Tired of these groups claiming false injustices.

    So typical of Islamic law terrorists wanting to suppress any information on anything that they don’t like.

    The reports should go forward on a regular basis.

  7. Perhaps if the Muslim community, all whopping 1% of our U.S. population today, would knock off – OR – curtail – OR – work to eliminate – the massive increase in barbaric acts of violence, emanating routinely from THEIR COMMUNITY, the “stigmatization experienced by Muslim communities” would come to en end.

    Not many seem to be willing to actually look at this problem, and the reaction to it, as a rational objection to this BEHAVIOR pattern, and this anti-civilization – geopolitical assault – perpetrated against everyone on the planet, including one another, as opposed to some ridiculous pseudo-religious debate, and discrimination rooted in this straw-man argument, worthy of a 4th grade class discussion at best.

    1400 years of mayhem, and we are still falling into the trap of having a dialogue about this issue as a “comparative religions of the world” conversation as a distraction, and embracing this increasingly dangerous idiocy…

    The fella that tried to blow up the St Cloud, Minnesota City Hall recently, wasn’t a seminary student of some religious flavor. And since over 75% of these fine folks have never read their Koran, perhaps this is more of a conditioned psychological imprint from birth on down the yellow brick road toward St Cloud, and neighborhood theaters of manufactured chaos and war right near you and me.

    What I do know for certain, is that when I wake up in the morning, the first thought that runs through my mind is NOT to blow something up, OR stab another human being, shoot someone, or stab, strangle, and beat my spouse, because she didn’t obey me like my German Shepherd pup. In fact, I don’t even think of him that way.. …Suggestion box Idea: How about building something today Muhammed..

    These people, including CAIR, all their crazy organizations, as well as this attorney, want to wipe out this “report” connected to the effect we are all dealing with today, as opposed to identifying the “cause”, and doing something about that.

    Dear Sirene Shebaya: The first step toward recovery is the admission that there is a problem, and that the first clue as to it’s “cause” can be located in your bathroom mirror…

    I don’t get it! …Or, maybe I do…
