FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Muslim civil rights group is asking state and federal authorities to investigate an alleged assault in Fargo as a hate crime.

The Minnesota chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations says two suspects were arrested after a Somali-American was beaten early Sunday.

CAIR says the victim was among three Muslim men who were approached by the suspects, who allegedly shouted racial slurs before assaulting the victim, whose injuries were not life threatening.

    If you have to live in Fargo, you are a long way from home.

    1. With free airfare, cash, monthly welfare payments, free medical, free housing and food, interpreters, lawyers and social services how can you blame them ? To bridge the gap with their loved ones back home we provide free Obamaphones to vidio-skype on the details of bringing them all over here.

  2. You don’t have to be a Harvard Lawyer to prove “Hate crime” laws are a violation of the 14th amendment.
