Muslim Group Sues To Stop Trump Admin From Releasing Report Tying Islam To Terrorism

From The Washington Times:
Two anti-Trump organizations filed a lawsuit Monday arguing that a government report earlier this year linking immigrants to most of the country’s terrorism cases since 2001 is so misleading that it violates federal law. 
The request seeks to recruit federal judges to police the accuracy of the administration, in what — if it’s successful — could become a model for anti-Trump groups to push back on a president they see as having a tenuous connection to the truth. 
The January report concluded that 73 percent of the 549 people convicted of international terrorism between 2001 and 2016 were foreign born. 
Activists were infuriated by the report at the time, and now two groups — Muslim Advocates and Democracy Forward — have sued, saying the investigation “misleadingly inflates the threat they pose to the United States,” and “inaccurately” focuses on Muslims. 
“The report perpetuates the ongoing stigmatization of immigrants and Muslims by the administration,” the groups said. 
“For example, 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. 
It has also specifically tied the report’s findings to its calls for an end to the issuance of diversity and family reunification visas, which would have a significant negative impact on Muslim immigrants.”

Has CAIR renamed itself? I didn't see CAIR mentioned in the article.

I don't know. I have never heard of Muslim Advocates before. But if you go to their website, they have a lot of people on staff.

They look like they're better are marketing than CAIR ever was. Many of them are actually smiling in their photos.
