Helena Immigration Attorney on being sent anti-Muslim email by top immigration official in MT

Shahid Haque-Hausrath

The top federal immigration officer for Montana may soon be resuming his post after more than a half-year suspension.

Supervisory Detention and Deportation officer for the Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bruce Norum, received the suspension for an email he forwarded last September from his work account.

The email contained anti-Muslim sentiments and suggested, among other things, that Muslim-Americans should have to prove their loyalty to the US in a post-9/11 world.

Word of the email spread when Norum sent the message to a Helena immigration attorney who not only represents Muslim clients, but is Pakistani and comes from an Islamic household.

Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce speaks with immigration attorney Shahid Haque-Hausrath about the email and his thoughts on Norum’s reinstatement.

    • Really? So why do you support what you claim to hate, every time you fill your gas tank? Where do you think your gas comes from? We just love dealing with the Saudis who publically behead over one person a week, they cut off the hands of petty thieves and adultry is just one of the capital crimes that will get you executed. Any kind of human rights are illegal as it goes against religious law. You are killed or put in prison for trying to organize human rights awareness, yet they are a huge and respected US trading partner, there are hundreds of Saudi students in Montana universities and we just love everything about them…soooo…. just who is you
      are you talking about?

      • Holtymonster, The majority of Christians no longer observe Biblical laws like, sacrifice of their cattle or daughters, stoning adulterers and those guilty of other capital crimes, grow your beard, eat locusts, avoid mixing fibers, never touch woman in menses and cut off her hand should she touch another mans privates while trying to defend her husband in a fight, nor do most always keep the sabbath holy, never lie, gossip, or observe any of the biblical laws that hurt themselves or others anymore.

        Just like their Christian counterparts, the vast majority of Muslims, do not observe or even relate to the violent aspects of Sharia law. There are very small factions of Sharia law supporters, similar to guys like US Army verteran Timothy McVeigh who declared, “I know in my heart that I am right in my struggle. I have come to peace with myself, my God and my cause. Blood will flow in the streets”. He killed 168 and injured another 800.

        Education is a beautiful thing. READ, broaden you literary horizons. Those who depend upon a few news sources and expect TV to tell it like it is, can expect a fast food, version of reality. If a Big Mac is all you know, well….. then thats all you know.
