(DALLAS, HOUSTON, SAN ANTONIO, 6/3/15) – The Texas office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Texas) today applauded the failure of anti-Islam bills in that state’s legislature.
The legislature adjourned without passing the House and Senate versions of the so-called “Anti-Foreign Law” bills.
CAIR-Texas says the bills were similar to those introduced in state legislatures nationwide in a campaign to demonize Islam and marginalize American Muslims.
In a statement, CAIR-Texas said:
“We thank all the lawmakers who showed wisdom and courage in opposing this unnecessary and unconstitutional legislation and focused on the more pressing issues – like education, health care and the economy – that our state is facing at this time.”
