Muhammad Ali Jr. Was Detained At ANOTHER Airport

no title

Are you serious, TSA???

The Donald Trump administration’s travel ban has been a source of controversy from day one, and part of the fall-out from the initial ban centered on the son of Muhammad Ali, after he was detained at an airport for hours last month — all because of his faith.

And now, well, here we go again.

Muhammad Ali, Jr. and his lawyers say that on Friday afternoon at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., while trying to check in for a flight at the ticket counter, he was flagged on a computer check and AGAIN detained by TSA agents who needed “more information” about him.

Word has it that the agent at the desk “wouldn’t accept” Ali Jr.’s government-issued Illinois driver’s license (?!?!), and instead put the boxer’s son on the phone with Department of Homeland Security officials.

Then, after a 20-minute phone call (the TSA says it was “only” 11 minutes), Ali was let pass and flew home.

Ali’s lawyers are adamant — this is about his faith, and it’s clearly a fact that whomever should be held to account for this — TSA, the President and his administration, etc. — needs to figure some things out and stop detaining travelers who just so happen to be Muslim.

Shameful, TSA!!!
