The American Civil Liberties Union has teamed-up with terrorist Co-conspirator CAIR to setup a hot line and internet relay for people who believe they are being racially profiled, having their computer’s seized illegally and to conduct general oversight of the FBI. Maybe its just me, but if anybody should have oversight its not the people of the FBI who are working to protect our butts from being blasted into tiny pieces, but its any organization that links with CAIR of whom it has been proven has close ties to terrorists.

Hotline set up for reporting suspected profiling at the border
Gregg Krupa / The Detroit NewsDETROIT — A coalition of community and civil right groups announced today the establishment of a telephone hotline and Internet address for quick reporting of any incidents of suspected profiling at the U.S.-Canadian border.The groups, led by the American Civil Liberties Union-Michigan, citied the continual difficulty some Muslims and people of Arab and South Asian descent encounter at border crossings. They also said they would call upon elected officials soon to:• End the seizure of laptops and cell phones at the border without probable cause.• End the repeated detentions of U.S. citizens re-entering the United States from countries in the Middle East.• Hold hearings on the various issues at the border.• Exercise oversight of the FBI, which has been operating under new guidelines in national security cases since Dec. 1.Beyond the concerns that Muslims, Arabs and South Asians have expressed about what they contend is profiling at the Ambassador and Blue Water bridges and the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, the FBI on Dec. 1 established new guidelines authorizing a wide range of new investigative techniques, which it intends to initiate without evidence of wrongdoing.Federal officials say the new tactics are required for national security and are well within the parameters of the Constitution. But a raft of community organizations and civil rights groups say the techniques are unconstitutional, absent a “reasonable cause” to believe a crime has occurred.”For the last eight years, our civil liberties have been under attack,” said Noel Saleh, a member of the board of directors of the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services. “We’re afraid implementation of these FBI guidelines will only make the situation worse. That is why it’s imperative that we come together and collectively work to ensure that we uphold our core American values of civil liberties and human rights for all.”ACCESS is one of several organizations participating in the initiative announced today. Others are the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the Council of American-Islamic Relations, the Detroit branch of the NAACP, the Metropolitan Organizing Strategy Enabling Strength and the Arab American Institute.”The racial and religious profiling that is allowed by the FBI and Boarder Patrol is only one example of how we have let our own protection of basic human rights and dignities degrade,” said Kary Moss, executive director of the ACLU-Michigan.FBI and border enforcement officials consistently maintain that their techniques are well within constitutional protections. Leaders of the FBI office in Detroit also meet monthly with community organizations to discuss the issues.
