With ISIS Threatening the US, Justice Department to Implement Restrictions on Religion Profiling

What could go wrong:

The Justice Department is set to announce broad restrictions on racial and religious profiling in federal investigations, including those involving matters of national security.

The expected ban comes amid heightened concerns of Islamic militant groups executing a terror attack on U.S. soil and was reportedly opposed by national security officials.

A Justice Department official told Fox News on Monday that outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder will announce the policy change in the coming weeks and that it will also put an end to profiling based on ethnicity and sexual orientation.

Holder intended to announce the policy change several months ago, but the White House ordered a last-minute hold so the Department of Homeland Security could review the national security implications, a congressional aide told The Los Angeles Times, which on Saturday first reported the story.

Profiling is an important part of any criminal investigation.  If there’s a serial killer investigation, I guarantee there’s profiling going on.

Should we stop doing that?  Of course not.

This is just more political correctness from the left that will only make us less safe.
