Click here to send your email to encourage the United States Senate Judiciary Committee to reject Nusrat Choudhury’s nomination because her strong bias makes her unfit to rule on important federal cases that could diminish public safety policies that protect millions of Americans.
The US Senate Executive Calendar dated June 13, 2022 reports the full United States Senate will vote on item number 970 which is the nomination of Nusrat Jahan Choudhury as a US District Court Judge. The official congressional record has yet to report a final vote on her nomination.
Middle East Eye published an article titled “US Muslims react to Biden's nomination of first Muslim woman to be federal judge.” The article reports in part:
Muslims across the United States are celebrating President Joe Biden’s judicial nomination of Nusrat Choudhury, who, if confirmed by the Senate, will be the first Muslim woman to be appointed as a US federal judge. Choudhury, a Bangladeshi American among the eight nominees announced by the White House on 19 January, is the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Illinois, a position she has held since 2020. Before that, she served as the deputy director of the national ACLU’s racial justice programme, following a stint as a senior staff attorney for the organisation's national security project, and was a Marvin M Karpatkin Fellow.
Nusrat Choudhury was a litigator in the first legal challenge to the United States No Fly List which protects millions of airline passengers from potential terror attacks every day. The Middle East Eye report states in part: She also challenged the No-Fly List of the US government, a database that government agencies use to decide who is allowed to board flights. In 2012 Choudhury was the litigator in the first federal lawsuit challenging the No-Fly List procedures.
The No Fly List lawsuit filed by terror-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is still being litigated in the United States District Court of Maryland even though the 4th US Circuit of Appeals upheld the Terror Watchlist against the same "due process" challenge in June 2021.
The reason that CAIR’s legal challenge to the No Fly List continues to be prosecuted is because of another public safety compromised judge, Judge Paula Xinis, denied the US Government's motion to dismiss the case. Judge Xinis, a former Federal Public Defender appointed by Barack Obama, said that “probing interrogations about travel to Muslim-majority countries, religious pilgrimages, learning Arabic, attending mosques, affiliations with Muslim organizations, religious donations, and associations with other Muslims” raise an inference that decisions to target Muslims are tied “directly, and perhaps solely, to Plaintiffs’ race, alienage, religious, and national origin.”
Nusrat Choudhury represented the radical Masjid At Taqwa in a lawsuit that sought to stop the NYPD from surveilling mosques and Muslims for potential terror activities. The Middle East Eye article states: To many, one of the most notable roles of Choudhury's career was when she was the litigator in the Raza v. City of New York lawsuit against the NYPD’s unjust surveillance and profiling of Muslims.
Mohammad Elshinawy, Asad Dandia, Masjid At-Taqwa, Masjid Al-Ansar, Muslims Giving Back and Hamid Raza sued the City of New York in an attempt to force the New York Police Department to remove their report titled Radicalization in the West: The Home Grown Threat. The lawsuit also sought to stop the New York Police Department from surveilling them and their mosques.
Imam Siraj Wahha who runs the Masjid At Taqwa mosque was the key note speaker at the Garland Texas Islamist rally on January 17, 2015 that called for the defeat of Islamophobia. "Ready to defeat Islamophobia? This is not an event. It is the beginning of a movement. A movement to defend Prophet Muhammad, his person, and his message. Salla Allahu Alaihe wa Sallam. This benefit will raise funds to establish a Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community, which will develop effective responses to anti-Islamic attacks.
The parties to the lawsuit agreed to settle the case. NYPD did NOT agree to stop surveilling Muslims or mosques, did NOT compromise on the core issue of investigation, did not admit any wrongdoing but agreed to remove their report titled Radicalization in the West: The Home Grown Threat from their website. Although NYPD agreed to remove the report it is still posted here.
Nusrat Choudhury is also a contributor/writer for the leftist hate web site Huffpost.com.
Clearly, Nusrat Choudhury has a strong bias that is most likely to forsake public safety. Her strong bias makes her unfit to rule on important federal cases that could diminish public safety policies that protect millions of Americans.
The United States Senate Judiciary Committee officially received Biden’s nomination of Nusrat Choudhury to be a District Court Judge for the United States Eastern District of New York. Florida Family Association sent out two email alerts on this issue starting on February 13, 2022 to encourage people to send emails to the members of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. Congress.gov reports "Reported by Senator Durbin, Committee on the Judiciary, without printed report. Committee on the Judiciary. Ordered to be reported favorably." A vote on her nomination is scheduled for June 13, 2022 item number 970 before the full United States Senate.
Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to encourage the full United States Senate to reject Nusrat Choudhury’s nomination because her strong bias makes her unfit to rule on important federal cases that could diminish public safety policies that protect millions of Americans.
