In April, the Los Angeles Times ran an op-ed complaining that
Muslims were being singled out in airports. “Does the 4th Amendment
apply to Muslim citizens at LAX?” Lubana Adi, its author, fumed.
Adi, a Syrian, told a sob story
about visiting her “aged mother” and two brothers who were refugees in
Turkey. Then airport security “groped” under her Hijab and demanded that
she empty her purse. They wanted to know why she had visited a border
city and where all the money she was carrying had gone.
“President Trump’s new security regime wastes yet more of our time and
our taxpayer money and shows outright scorn for the spirit of the 4th
Amendment,” Adi complained.
The Los Angeles Times felt that the story was so important that
it needed to be referenced in future pieces as an example of the abuses
that Muslims face in this country.
