The Los Angeles City Board casted a ballot consistently to pay a hazardous Islamist association to give lawful portrayal to settlers confronting extradition.
Historically, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has defended Muslim immigrants at high risk of terrorism. With the city chairman’s endorsement, CAIR’s LA part will before long get bits of a $4 million award to address “kept and non-confined” travelers in evacuation procedures.
Contractual services provided by CAIR-LA are part of a public-private partnership known as RepresentLA, a program that promises to provide immigrants with due process. CAIR is one of a small bunch of charities entrusted with supporting “certifiable migration help” with citizen and confidential establishment monies.
Since state laws and city policies prohibit local police from questioning or detaining a person based on citizenship status, Los Angeles is a “City of Sanctuary.” As a result, many of the “detained” deportees that CAIR is currently tasked with defending may end up in prison for more serious offenses. The city’s agreement with CAIR comes as “inside extraditions” under the Biden organization have arrived at record low numbers, as per Todd Bensman, Public safety Individual at the Middle for Movement Studies.
Bensman told Focus on Western Islamism, referring to detained immigrants, “there’s probably some highly derogatory national intelligence information on them, because the Biden administration does not deport.” Bensman was referring to deportation proceedings.
With assistance from CAIR, politically motivated justices might track down cause to impede extraditions and delivery more unlawful settlers into American urban areas. Even more troubling, the fact that CAIR has a history of activism and legal maneuvering on behalf of immigrants suggests that deportees who are suspected of serious terrorism-related offenses may soon receive a taxpayer-funded legal defense.
According to federal law enforcement, CAIR, a self-described “Muslim civil advocacy organization,” was established as a publicity front for Hamas. It was listed as an unindicted conspirator in a landmark terror finance trial involving the same Palestinian terrorist organization. Today, CAIR promotes a curious mix of Islamist and socially liberal ideals, becoming increasingly involved in progressive causes and frequently joining intersectional alliances with the far left.
CAIR, for instance, has held rallies and fundraisers to free Pakistani neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui, also known as “Lady Al Qaeda.” Siddiqui was arrested in Afghanistan with plans for a “mass casualty attack” at a number of locations in the United States. Siddiqui is currently serving an 86-year sentence for attempting to kill her American captors. This is just one instance in which CAIR has attempted to portray genuine concerns about national security as an attack on Muslim civil liberties.
The border is where CAIR lacks concern for public safety. CAIR accused the government of “singling out” Muslims in “a two-tiered justice system” in the months following 9/11, when immigration authorities sought Muslim and Arab visitors “from countries with highly active Al Qaeda networks” who were facing deportation orders.
After College of South Florida teacher Sami Al-Arian confronted a 17-count prosecution for psychological oppression wrongdoings and migration misrepresentation, CAIR organizer Nihad Awad went to a pledge drive on the side of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) pioneer. CAIR kept on battling for Al-Arian following his conviction for offering material help to an unfamiliar fear monger bunch, presenting a “Advancing Equity” grant to Al-Arian and communicating “lament” over his inevitable removal.
All the more as of late, CAIR’s California branches openly safeguarded and recorded lawful movements on the side of Omar Ameen, a blamed part for Al Qaeda and ISIS who was confronting removal for his supposed contribution in the 2014 homicide of an Iraqi cop. A government judge decided that examiners, who depended on witness declaration assembled from a disaster area, neglected to demonstrate the psychological oppression body of evidence against Ameen, yet resolved he lied on his migration papers to acquire section to the U.S.
In a choice that CAIR “welcome[d],” a movement judge therefore impeded endeavors to oust Ameen over fears he may be tormented by Iraqi specialists. However, after hearing new evidence from FBI and naval intelligence officers, the same judge denied the defendant’s request to be released on bond, describing him as a “danger to the community.”
CAIR-LA, which is going to get its share of a $4 million grant to help deportees, has a history of helping criminal immigrants. A town hall meeting was held in 2004 by the LA branch to discuss the government’s alleged “targeting” of Muslim religious leaders like Abdul Jabbar Hamdan and Wagdy Ghoneim.
Ghoneim, a former imam at the Islamic Institute of Orange County, was deported for making extremist statements, including supporting suicide bombings and referring to Jews as “descendants of apes and pigs” at a CAIR rally. He was also arrested for violating immigration laws. Hussam Ayloush, the executive director of CAIR-LA, defended Ghoneim by stating, “The whole Muslim community is under a microscope of scrutiny today.”
Hamdam, on the other hand, was in danger of being deported after overstaying his student visa by 27 years. He was thought of as a “boss pledge drive” for the Sacred Land Establishment, an Islamic foundation whose pioneers got extended jail sentences for channeling millions to Hamas, and similar gathering with which investigators blamed CAIR for scheming.
Mayor Karen Bass, a longtime advocate for decriminalizing immigration and open borders, has yet to give her final approval to LA’s new immigration program.
