New York Congressman Peter King wants to investigate why Muslims are becoming more radical here in the United States.


But as CBS 2’s Demetra Ganias found out Muslims say those controversial hearings will give them a bad name.


Muslims, Jews and Christians gathered outside Rep. King’s office Tuesday to ask him to stop targeting Muslims and cancel hearings on what King calls the radicalization of Muslim-Americans.
