CAIR Calls on Maine, New Jersey GOP Chairs to Repudiate Prejudiced Comments by Officials

WASHINGTON - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today called on the Republican Party chairs in Maine and New Jersey to repudiate comments made recently by GOP officials in those states that revealed prejudices, including anti-Muslim prejudice.

In New Jersey, Union Beach Mayor Paul Smith shared an image on Facebook that called President Obama "a communist, a Muslim, and an illegal alien," clearly referring to those groups in a pejorative manner.
