This is not okay.

Hundreds of Muslim Immigrants Rounded Up in Calif.

Hundreds of Iranian and other Middle East citizens were in southern California jails on Wednesday after coming forward to comply with a new rule to register with immigration authorities only to wind up handcuffed and behind bars.

Shocked and frustrated Islamic and immigrant groups estimate that more than 500 people have been arrested in Los Angeles, neighboring Orange County and San Diego in the past three days under a new nationwide anti-terrorism program. Some unconfirmed reports put the figure as high as 1,000.

What the hell is being done in the name of American citizens?!

And why can’t I find this Reuters story on CNN?

    CNN is the lapdog of the Bush administration; it’s just pathetic.
