Texas Legislator instructs staff to ask Muslims to pledge allegiance to America

Texas state Representative, Molly White posted on her facebook page a few hours ago said she instructed her staff to ask Muslim constituents to “publicly announce allegiance to America.”

In response to White’s post, CAIR Government Affairs Manager Robert McCaw sent a letter to Texas Speaker Joe Straus asking if White violated any House ethics rules by “creating such an internal office policy that is selectively being enforced to discriminate against certain religious minorities.”

“The Texas Capitol belongs to all the people of this state, and legislators have a responsibility to treat all visitors just as we expect to be treated — with dignity and respect, anything else reflects poorly on the entire body and distracts from the very important work in front of us.”

White later commented on Facebook, “I do not apologize for my comments. … if you love America, obey our laws and condemn Islamic terrorism, then I embrace you as a fellow American. If not, then I do not.”

“Isn’t it amazing when you stand for America, our allies and against terrorism how much vile and angry responses you get? I will never cow to anti Americanism and extremists,” she wrote in another comment.

“I am banning users that are insulting,” she added.
