ORLANDO, Fla. -
The spiritual leader of the Islamic Society of Central Florida calls Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s latest plans for screening immigrants reckless and dangerous.
“His proposals are very offensive,” said Imam Muhammad Musri.
During his Monday speech in Youngstown, Ohio, Trump said the U.S. "should only admit into this country those who share our values" and determine that with a new screening test. He said, "I call it extreme, extreme, vetting.”
To that, Musri responded, “His proposal is misguided and ill-informed. It's not going to make the country more secure.”
“He's not only endangering the Muslim community. He's endangering our national security," said Rasha Mubarak, the regional coordinator of CAIR Florida (Council On American-Islamic Relations.)
CAIR fears Trump's words will incite anti-Muslim violence. Mubarak points to the weekend murders of a New York imam and assistant, that may have been fueled by hate.
Mubarak added this about Trump’s proposed foreign policy plans: “This is what extremists want to see. They want to see a division in this country and we need to stand together.”
An estimated 2,000 Muslims attend the University of Central Florida, the nation’s second largest university. Seven hundred of these students hail from 50 countries and are attending classes on student visas.
Fearing Trump's message could spur on-campus attacks by Trump supporters, the head of the UCF Muslim Student Association said the group will soon be encouraging a “buddy system” approach when walking around campus, especially at night.
Maha Quereshi, president of the association, told WESH 2 NEWS, “I'm afraid that we could have a shooting on campus at one of our larger events where they might see a bunch of Muslims or girls walking in head scarves and decide to attack them. Like, that's honestly a fear of mine.”
Last Thursday during a demonstration in front of the convention center on International Drive in Orlando, the local Muslim community joined an LGBTQ anti-Trump protest. Speaking at the event was Imam Abdurrahman Sykes of the Islam Society Leading American Muslims. He told the crowd, “Voting for haters and tyrants is a betrayal of religious liberty and will result in harm to both our country and the spirits living in our nation.”
