The stories of minorities being racially profiled in Michigan and other states were heard today at a Congressional hearing held by U.S. Rep. John Conyers of Detroit, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

The hearing featured testimony from African-American, Sikh, and Islamic groups, including Muslim Advocates, whose executive director Farhana Khera told of a Muslim man from metro Detroit who said he was profiled and harassed by federal agents at the U.S.-Canada border.
