Joint Letter: From American Muslims to President-Elect Trump

Following the November elections, many Imams and leaders of Muslim organizations sent a letter to president-elect Donald Trump expressing their concerns about anti-Muslim rhetoric during the campaign and appointments to the Trump transition team of individuals who speak negatively and falsely about American Muslims. They point to the rise in hate crimes against Muslims since the election, and are very concerned about a proposed Muslim registry which would be unconstitutional.
