U.S. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly can expect tough questioning when he meets with local Arab-American leaders Monday as part of a visit to metro Detroit.
Travel restrictions sought by President Donald Trump on visitors from majority-Muslim countries have sparked concern and anger, said those who plan to be at the meeting.
"This community feels they're under attack, especially by the Department of Homeland Security," said Nabih Ayad, a Dearborn attorney who is founder of the Dearborn-based Arab-American Civil Rights League and one of about eight Arab-American leaders scheduled to meet with Kelly. "He's going to hear it firsthand. We're not going to sugarcoat it. He needs to understand from a civil rights side and a security side how it's affecting the community."
