Former Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann has called for a complete shutdown on mass immigration into the U.S. and harshly criticized the jihad-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) for complaining that the sexual assault of a five-year-old Idaho girl at the hands of Muslim males has become a “lightning rod for anti-Muslim and anti-refugee sentiments.”
In a Thursday Facebook post, CAIR issued a statement on the child sex assault:
Anti-Muslim agitators and those opposed to resettlement of refugees from the Syrian civil war nevertheless seized on the incident to buttress their arguments for shutting down a refugee center in Twin Falls to prevent entry by displaced Syrians…
Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the Idaho sexual assault should be fully investigated but added the case had become a lightning rod for anti-Muslim, and anti-refugee sentiments.
“These two forms of hostility seem to be overlapping and reinforcing each other,” he said.
