There’s outrage in Dearborn over calls from Donald Trump for profiling of Muslim Americans.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee is yet again calling for profiling of Muslim people. He calls it a way of making our country safer, in the wake of the Orlando mass shooting tragedy.

The American Arab Anti-discrimination Committee is taking a stand against Trump's comments and suggestions Muslim people should be denied entry to the US or forced to register in a database.

Today, at the Islamic Center of America on Ford Road, a prayer service was held for those victims who died senselessly in the Orlando shooting massacre and one year ago in Charleston, South Carolina.

Religious leaders and people in Dearborn were calling for peace and respect for all human life.
