Rep. Peter King Urges Donald Trump To Create A Federal Muslim Surveillance Program

Source: Huffington Post

NEW YORK ― Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) is encouraging Donald Trump to create a federal Muslim surveillance program that’s modeled after New York City’s failed and likely unconstitutional program.

“The main issues I discussed were what we have to do to have the Justice Department and the FBI be more leaning-forward when it comes to investigating Islamic terrorism,” King told reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in Manhattan after meeting with the president-elect on Thursday.

“I suggested a program similar to what Commissioner Kelly did here in New York,” King said, referring to former New York City Police Department Commissioner Ray Kelly, “and that we can’t worry about political correctness.”

For over half a decade after the 9/11 terror attacks, Kelly oversaw a surveillance program that targeted New York and New Jersey Muslims because of their faith.

6. Is there some old civil war law we can use to purge all voters that fly a confederate flag

 

We'd win the college and be done with this insanity.

7. You may have something there.

 

Laws tend to be forgotten and left on the books. I'm sure there were such laws right after the civil war, and they could still be alive and well. I realize they would be unenforceable, but think of the fun we could have.

8. Well, he would know all about people who support terrorists because they share the same faith...

but no, it's not a typical thing to do. For Catholics, Muslims, or anyone else.
