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.
