ADL slams Trump’s call for a database of US Muslims

The Anti-Defamation League called Donald Trump’s claim that he would create a database to track all American Muslims if he were elected president “deeply troubling.”
“Donald Trump’s suggestion that we use a database to track Muslims is deeply troubling and reminiscent of darker days in American history when others were singled out for scapegoating,” the ADL said in a statement Friday.
“Such a proposal is not only inimical to our cherished civil liberties, but it also wildly misses the goal of finding a rational balance between civil liberties and the security measures necessary to protect those liberties.”
