Special US Prison Units Fill with Muslims

March 6, 2011

Lucile Malandain,  Agence France-Presse, speaks to the Center for Constitutional Rights about religious profiling in Control Management Units (CMUs) in Federal Prisons:

 

‘But while Muslims account for six percent of the inmate population in federal prisons as a whole, in the CMUs “somewhere between 65 and 72 percent of the population is Muslim,” said Alexis Agathocleous, an attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights.

 

“So, that’s a tenfold over representation. That obviously raises concerns about religious profiling,” he said.’
