Bloomberg’s Anti-Muslim Spying Program
As Mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg oversaw an entire surveillance state targeting American Muslims.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg continues to remain silent on the New York Police Department’s sweeping, years-long surveillance and profiling program targeting Muslims in New York and New Jersey.
While Mayor Bloomberg was discriminating against Black and Latino communities with ‘stop and frisk,’ he was also spying on thousands of innocent Muslims. As the landmark decision in our lawsuit Hassan v. City of New York demonstrated, innocent people were filmed, had their communities mapped and had undercover officers infiltrate their mosques, schools, businesses and restaurants under Bloomberg’s leadership. To this day, he has not disavowed this program.
