Ever since the immigration executive order was signed liberals have been trying to paint this situation as a mini World War III precursor. Story after story has popped home in the news depicting the administration as xenophobes. Now another story has come to the spotlight but this time it is of a Muslim woman who lied about the reason she was detained.
A Muslim woman and immigrant from Canada told reporters she was denied access and entry to the United States by Border Agents this past Saturday. Her name is Fadwa Alaoui and she was born and raised in Morocco.
She said she was denied entry because agents found a video on her phone of Muslims praying.
She said the following to CBC,
“I felt humiliated, treated as if I was less than nothing. It’s as if I wasn’t Canadian. He said, ‘Do you practise? Which mosque do you go to? What is the name of the imam? How often do you go to the mosque? What kind of discussions do you hear in the mosque? Does the imam talk to you directly?’”
She argued the videos were simply reminders of her daily prayer. She detailed her experience of having to wait an hour while agents reviewed her credentials and then coming back and denying her entry. She said,
“They said, ‘You’re not allowed to go to the United States because we found videos on your phone that are against us.”
What she fails to understand is that non-American citizens are not covered under the Freedom of Religion Act. Border agents can ask her whatever questions they want because those freedoms are not guaranteed to citizens of other countries.
Not to mention the fact that Muslims, as well as sympathizers, have been known to create fake crimes in order to bring more attention to their cause. Look no further than the Arab man who was a notorious prankster and tried spreading a viral video of being kicked off an airplane for speaking Arabic to his mother. Which turned out to be acting.
How easily people forget.
