CALIF. GROUPS ASK FBI DIRECTOR TO ADDRESS PROFILING, ISLAMOPHOBIA

Muslim World

The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California (ACLU-NC), the Asian Law Caucus (ALC), and the San Francisco Bay Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-SFBA) have announced that they sent a joint letter to FBI Director Robert Mueller in advance of his Nov 17 visit to San Francisco asking him to address issues of racial profiling and Islamophobia.

“We have sought answers to these questions from local FBI officials for months now,” said ALC staff attorney Veena Dubal. “It is our hope that Director Mueller’s visit to the Bay Area is an opportunity to raise our collective voices to address the grave concerns we have about the FBI’s practices in the Bay Area.”

In the joint letter to Mueller, ACLU-NC, ALC and CAIR-SFBA seek answers about the relationship between the local and federal law enforcement through the JTTF, the control the FBI seeks to exercise over local agencies through the JTTF MoU, the civil rights standards local law enforcement agents participating in the JTTF abide by, and the impact of and corrective plan for local officers who participated in the Islamophobic trainings hosted by the FBI.
