A Minnesota Muslim criminal has received a $120,000 cash reward after she refused to remove her hijab for a mugshot while detained at a jail in Ramsey County.
Aida Shyef Al-Kadi, a 57-year-old Muslim woman, claimed that it was “one of the most humiliating and harmful experiences” to remove her headwear like any other inmate would be required to do.
“I knew that I did not want any other Muslim woman to experience what I did,” she said at the Minneapolis headquarters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) last week to announce the settlement.
Al-Kadi was booked after missing a court appearance regarding a traffic offense. She claimed that she had to take her daughter to the hospital and that is why she missed the hearing.
“She made it clear from the beginning that this case wasn’t about looking backward, it was about looking forward and standing up not only for herself, but for the broader Muslim community; and standing up for the broader Muslim community is precisely what Ms. Al-Kadi did,” said Caitlinrose Fisher, who is one of Al-Kadi’s attorneys.
After Al-Kadi turned herself in, she was told to take off her hijab and abaya, which is a long traditionally Muslim dress covering her body. She objected to the practice initially, but eventually complied. She claimed this was an infringement of her Constitutional rights.
Al-Kadi whined that her mugshot appeared on a third-party website that charges a fee to remove them, and that she was forced to wear a jail uniform while she was behind bars like the rest of her fellow inmates.
“We believe that this settlement agreement is fair and in the best interests of all of our residents. Ramsey county’s values hold that the rights, beliefs, well-being and dignity of all our residents are protected and honored in all aspects of what we do,” said Jim McDonough, who is Ramsey County board chair, in a statement last week.
“The practices outlined in the agreement to improve the booking process for those with religious head coverings better reflect these values,” he added.
U.S. District Court Judge John Tunheim ultimately approved the settlement. The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office noted that nobody will be disciplined for their treatment of Al-Kadi because “their actions were in accordance with existing policy.”
“The policy, at the time, mirrored those for jails and correctional facilities around the region,” said Chief Sheriff’s Deputy David Metusalem. “Shortly after this issue was raised, policies were modified and there have not been any problems since.”
Jaylani Hussein, executive director of CAIR in Minnesota, cheered on the “six years of courage and determination by Ms. Al-Kadi, who has fought not only for herself, but for Muslim women to be dignified and treated with respect when they encounter law enforcement.”
“Our faith asks us to stand against oppression either with our hearts, our tongues by speaking out and with our hands,” said Asma Mohammed, advocacy director for Reviving the Islamic Sisterhood for Empowerment.
“Aida did all of those things. She didn’t just do this for herself, she did this because she knew that moving forward, other Muslim women deserve dignity when they are detained, that they deserve dignity no matter where they are,” Mohammed added.
Creeping Sharia law is on the rise with different legal standards being applied to individuals adhering to the Islamic faith. Anti-Semitic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has to be very happy at this decisions and the implications it will have throughout the nation.
The White House Walks Back From DACA Deal…. For Now
Emerald Robinson, the Newsmax White House Correspondent, reported that White House advisor Jared Kushner is holding meetings on a potential DACA amnesty deal.
She tweeted, “BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.”

For many America First activists, Kushner has played a subversive role in the Trump administration by recommending milquetoast policies that maintain the open border status quo and are soft on crime.
Many speculate that Kushner is largely the individual who is advising President Trump to take a soft approach against the looters rampaging across the country.
Now there are reports that the White House is backing away from this DACA deal per a report from Breitbart News.
However, grassroots immigration patriots such as Maria Espinoza, the co-founder of the Remembrance Project, had choice words for this rumored move by Jared Kushner.
She told BLP:
Donald Trump’s promise to The Remembrance Project’s angel moms, dads, and angel families of ‘Stolen Lives’ was to deport illegal aliens and keep American families safe. No family should suffer the killing of their loved one at the hands of an individual who should not have been in our country in the first place.Any talks taking place should be about keeping us safe so that our families, businesses and communities can thrive. It’s heartless for Kushner to even hold talks of amnesty.
DACA refers to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a United States immigration policy where some illegal aliens who were brought to the country as children in order to obtain a renewable two-period of deferred action from deportation and receive eligibility for work permits in the U.S.
Back in 2014, President Barack Obama revealed his intention to broaden DACA provisions to cover even more illegal alien immigrants.
This is in contrast to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act. Under the DREAM Act, illegal aliens would be granted temporary conditional residency that includes the right to work if they were brought to the United States as minors. If they meet additional qualifications, they would be able to receive permanent residency.
Although these kinds of proposals are different, they’re all a part of a mass migration agenda designed to undermine the Historic American Nation.
Kushner and his ilk believe that offering reasonable compromises will somehow placate the Left.
In reality, such compromises will only further embolden them, given the fact that the voting patterns of these groups overwhelmingly favor the political Left and its many pet projects such as the destruction of the right to bear arms.
Although the DACA threat may be contained for now, as long as Open Borders Inc and its many factions continue operating, there will always be a looming threat of legal migration expansion, amnesty, or backdoor amnesties.
This is why it’s so important that America First patriots score major victories in all branches of government.
The time to engage in political discourse is over. Now, we must force politicians to go on record via roll call votes. From there, we’ll know who’s America First or America Last.
