Political Correctness Triumphs in Detroit

The Detroit Free Press reports that,
An ordinance that bans profiling was approved Wednesday by the Detroit City Council. It prohibits police and city employees from asking about the immigration status of residents.

The council voted unanimously for the law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, dress, physical appearance and immigration status. Under the new law, police cannot ask people for their immigration papers unless it was related to a crime.
It goes on to to discuss the fears of immigrants; that they will be hassled and inconvenienced by "The Man". And the usual pressure groups played their part.
The ordinance was introduced after talks with Latino, Arab and Muslim groups. The Detroit-based group Metropolitan Organizing Strategy Enabling Strength played a lead role in pushing for the law.
Dawud Walid, head of the Michigan branch of the Council of American-Islamic Relations, said he is pleased with the council's vote. "The city of Detroit should be seen as a place that is not hostile to immigrants."
Of course, CAIR is pleased with anything that will make it easier for jihadis to come here illegally and live in the belly of the infidel beast.

The article itself was run on the back page of the Local section, down near the bottom, under the half page weather forcast. This makes me wonder if it was hidden there because the people of Detroit were probably not consulted in this unanimous decision.

Why does this not surprise me?
I think we as a nation are traveling down a dangerous slope. I hope someone can stop this craziness!
