Muhammad Ali’s son was detained, questioned about his religon at airport

From Twitter

The invisible hand of President Trump continues to stir chaos in America.

Millions have already been affected his Presidency, familes have been torn apart, lives have been destroyed.

The streets are on fire with protesters, and broken dreams.

The vaunted immigration order that banned refugees from seven Muslim majority countries has since been thrown out in the courts, and it was so poorly done, that the Justice Department does not have the grounds to take it to the supreme court.

So for now, America is in a holding pattern while the Trump administration plots it’s next move.

But there still has been issues.

Even though it was never announced, a covert deportation force has been secretly deployed all over the country at the behest of the President, the stories about undocumented immigrants being snatched out of school or at work are growing by the day.

Despite the fact that there is currently no immigration ban in place, the atmosphere in this country has changed.

For example.

Muhammad Ali Jr, the son of the legendary Muhammad Ali was recently detained at an airport, and questioned about his religon.

He was in custody for several hours.

From the Miami Times

Muhammad Ali Jr., the only son of Muhammad Ali, was on his way back from Montego Bay, Jamaica, with his mother and Ali’s first wife, Khalilah, when immigration officers detained them.

Ali Jr., age 44, had no criminal record and carries a United States passport, Mancini says. He recently moved to Deerfield Beach to live with his mother. Last year, Ali Jr. received a large share of his father’s multimillion-dollar fortune.

Immigration officers asked Ali Jr. for his full name, date of birth, and religion. They held him for 30 minutes, then separated him from his mother, and took him to a small room. An officer returned a half-hour later and again asked him his religion. 

Ali Jr’s brush with the “law” is one of many stories that have taken place over the last 3 weeks.

But come on, Muhammad Ali’s son?

Did the immigration officers bother to google the man before holding him in custody?

Ali Jr is a law abiding US citizens with deep ties to the country, and President Trump.

Trump was very close to the Ali family, and spent time with Muhammad Ali Sr on plenty of occassions.

This is an outrage, and considering the fact that Muahmmed Ali died last year, it would make sense for some type of apology to be forthcoming from the White House.
