It has come to light that the son of late boxing great Muhammad Ali was impacted by the "extreme vetting" process of President Donald Trump's executive order earlier this month. Muhammad Ali Jr., 44, was detained at Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on February 7.
Upon return from a trip to Jamaica with his mother, Ali Jr. was stopped and held for questioning focused on his religion, for what amounted to hours, he claims. Meanwhile, Khalilha Ali, who was married to the champ from 1967 to 1976, and birthed his oldest boy, was let go after she simply showed a photo of her together with Muhammad. The whole purpose of Ali Jr.'s travels was to be by his mother's side, in support of a speech on black history she was booked to deliver on the island.
"This is an outrage," family lawyer Chris Mancini told the Miami New Times. He says that they have considered filing a lawsuit against the government for profiling and discrimination. "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," said Mancini.
It should be noted that Muhammad Ali Jr. is a U.S. citizen. He was in possession of a passport when he was taken into custody. Muslim citizens have been coming forward in increasing numbers to detail how they've been profiled by the President's executive action, which he defends is meant to keep foreign terrorists off of U.S. soil.
Earlier this week, Muslim passengers on a cross-country flight from San Francisco to New York City reported having been required to show I.D. upon arrival at their destination. President Trump and official spokespeople for the Trump administration have continuously denied that the executive order focuses on religion.

The court order was hinged on an allegation of indebtedness on the part of the defendants to the tune of $16.4 million and N100.5 million.
The court thereby directed the commercial banks harbouring the assets of Stella Oduah and the four companies to sequestrate their indebtedness as at November 2016 and that the money should be kept in an interest yielding account in the name of the chief Registrar of the Federal court, pending the determination of the suit filed before the court to recover the debt.
