Muhammad Ali Jr. Sues President Trump For Unlawful Detention



Muhammad Ali Jr., child of the colossal boxing legend, is suing President Trump after he was coercively confined twice at two different airports

Ali says he needs to indict President Trump over the dubious and unlawful travel boycott. In a meeting with the Mail, Ali claims he was embarrassed in the wake of being halted and unlawfully kept at two distinct airplane terminals since he is a Muslim. 

Ali is an American citizen, just like his dad. 

"They ceased me for reasons unknown," Ali told the Mail. "They halted me for my last name being Ali. A Muslim."

Nypost.com reports:

Ali, the boxer’s only biological son, was first stopped at customs at Fort Lauderdale Airport on Feb. 7, ironically while returning from a civil rights forum on Capitol Hill.
He was detained a second time — for two hours — on March 10, he said.
His lawyer, Chris Mancini, told The Mail that he believes officials were trying to “teach him a lesson” about making the first detention public.
Ali’s class action suit will be filed with his mother, Khalila Ali; he plans to include as plaintiffs more than 1,300 Muslims who also claim the travel rules are discriminatory and abusive, the lawyer said.
Ali’s father, who died June 3, famously conscientiously objected to the Vietnam war on religious grounds, getting convicted for draft evasion and giving up both his freedom and his championship title.
“My father would do the same thing I did,” Ali told Dailymail.com.
“They still don’t respect people of color,” he complained. “We are a race of human beings and if I have to fight for eternity then so be it. I will not sleep until our people are respected as an equal opportunity, equal rights for all people that are Americans.”
