Muhammad Ali’s son detained at Florida airport, his attorney is ‘outraged’

The son of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali was detained at a Florida airport during President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban.

Former federal prosecutor and friend of the Ali family, Chris Mancini, said Ali. Jr. was asked about his religion during his detention.

“This is an outrage,” he said. “I don’t know what is going on with Mr. Trump’s claim that his ban is not religion-based. We do not discriminate in this country based on religion.”

“What right does the United States have to inquire about somebody’s religion when they enter the country?” he added. “There was no other basis for a secondary inspection. This is an instance where the ban has been enforced even though it has been thrown out. The government is still trying to find grounds to keep Muslims out.”

Khalilah Ali was nit detained after she showed officers a picture of her with her superstar husband.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it was not able to speak on the specifics of the incident.
