This morning Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez testified before Chairman Dick Durbin (D-MI) and members of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Human Rights.
On the panel's agenda was the DOJ's efforts to protect the rights of Muslim, Arab, Sikh and South-Asian Americans.
"With each new wave of intolerance, our nation has responded – passing new civil rights laws, striking down old laws that sanctioned discrimination, and eventually recognizing the value of diverse communities and embracing those previously shunned," said Assistant Attorney General Perez.
However, it appears -- based on his record at DOJ -- that Perez is more interested in protecting Muslims, Asians and other minorities, than he is in helping to create a color-blind society and a fair society. In spite of evidence that revealed Perez advocated a DOJ policy that excluded protecting white American citizens, while protecting suspected terrorists, illegal aliens, and minority-members who commit crimes.
However, the Assistant Attorney General reportedly prevented Coates, who was the DOJ's prime investigator in the case, from testifying and subsequently transferred him to the U.S. Attorney's Office in South Carolina.
