Many of you may recall when Muhammad Ali’s 44 year old son, Ali Jr., was detained at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Florida, as he returned to his Fl. home from Jamaica. He and his family say was illegally detained due to his Muslim religion under Trump’s travel ban against several Muslim countries.

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 09: Muhammad Ali Jr. (L), son of boxing legend Muhammad Ali, and his mother Khalilah Camacho-Ali participate in a forum titled 'Ali v. Trump: The Fight for American Values' about immigration enforcement with Democratic members of the House of Representatives in the House Visitors Center at the U.S. Capitol March 9, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Fast forward to Thursday (March 9), about a month after his illegal airport detention (on February 7th) and both he and his mother/Ali-s ex-wife, Kamilla Camacho-Ali, have taken their fight to Congress to speak against Trump’s travel ban. The Ali’s were part of a forum called “Ali v. Trump: The Fight for American Values,” which was organized by Rep. Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., and Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich.

In his address to Congress, Ali Jr., an American born resident, revealed how he felt during his 2-hour detention at the Fl. airport:

“If it isn’t a Muslim ban, why did they ask about my religion?” Ali Jr. stated to Congress. He also recalled some of the repeated questions he says TSA officers grilled him about:”Where did you get your name?” and “Are you Muslim?”

“I felt that my human rights [were] just abused. I felt like [an] immigrant, you know. I mean…I felt just like I felt at my father’s funeral,” he stated without going into further detail about the champ’s funeral. “I didn’t know what to think…I was just dumbfounded,” Ali Jr. continued.”We need to step into the ring and join the fight for righteousness, for truth, and for peace.”
