CAIR says “Jump!” South Carolina prison answers, “How high?”

images-1Litigation jihadists from CAIR complain to South Carolina prison that Muslim women prisoners are not allowed to wear their headbags during search and processing. In a heartbeat, the prison bows to the Islamic supremacists and changes its policy to accommodate the demands of Muslim Brotherhood front group CAIR (Council on Anti-American Islamic Relations).

In a letter to CAIR, Ronaldo D. Myers, director of the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Columbia, S.C., wrote:

“As requested, we have reviewed and updated our policies to ensure clarity with our staff on the processing and searching of female detainees of the Muslim faith, and specifically have exempted the wearing of religious headwear from our facility’s ‘Prohibited Acts’ policy.”

But that’s not all:

Earlier this year, the CAIR’s Washington state chapter welcomed a new policy in King County that permits hijab in all jails and courthouses.

Last year, CAIR’s St. Louis chapter thanked county and law enforcement officials for agreeing to provide religious accommodation for Muslim women who wear hijab and are held in the St. Louis County Jail in Clayton, Mo.

CAIR’s Minnesota chapter helped resolve a similar case in which a Muslim woman sought to exercise her religious rights while in jail.

In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to overturn a lower court ruling that said a Muslim woman “had the right to wear the scarf unless jailers could show it was a security risk.”

In that case, the Muslim woman’s suit cited the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA), which prohibits state and local governments from imposing “a substantial burden on the religious exercise of a person residing in or confined to an institution.”
