NY Rep. Peter King wants federal Muslim surveillance program

It didn’t work in New York and was probably unconstitutional, but that doesn’t stop NY Rep. Peter King (R) from want to see it go national.

For over half a decade after the 9/11 terror attacks, (former NYPD Commissioner Ray) Kelly oversaw a surveillance program that targeted New York and New Jersey Muslims because of their faith. Officers in the since-disbanded Demographics Unit infiltrated Muslim student groups, kept track of Muslims who changed their last names, eavesdropped on conversations between Muslims, spied on Muslim-owned businesses, recorded imam’s sermons, and put undercover officers and informants inside mosques.

Apparently, the PEOTUS is on board, per King:

Asked Thursday how Trump had responded to his proposal for a federal Muslim surveillance program, King said, “I was talking and he was nodding.”
