The Department of Homeland Security is continuing to use the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) as an outreach partner, despite the Justice Department identifying it as a Muslim Brotherhood entity and designating it as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism-financing trial in American history.
CAIR's Florida branch has published a letter from the DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties thanking it for its years of collaboration. The author says it was written at the request of the Secretary of Homeland Security, General John Kelly. It is dated May 5 and can be seen at Pamela Geller's website.
"The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appreciates your years of support and partnership with the Department's Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, working on issues central to the DHS mission, including identifying civil rights and civil liberties concerns in the homeland security context," it states.
