State lawmakers in Louisiana have approved a new measure to force all state agencies and law enforcement to "avoid and suspend" any ties with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR, an advocacy group that has been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas terrorists.

The resolution, which makes Louisiana the first state to take such action, requires "law enforcement and governmental agencies in Louisiana to avoid and suspend all contacts and outreach activities with the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)," according to a copy of the resolution.

The legislation outlines CAIR’s connection to Hamas and as a unindicted co-conspirator in a case centered around funding of the terror group.

Other states are expected to follow suit by implementing similar legislation.

CAIR, which bills itself as an outreach group, has long been suspected of being tied to the Muslim Brotherhood organization and other radical entities.
