On Tuesday, Sen. Jeff Sessions testified at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on his nomination to be attorney general in the Trump administration.
Sen. Chris Coons (D-Delaware) asked Sessions if he would support a national registry of Muslims and the surveillance of mosques.
“I would not favor a registry of Muslims in the United States, no I would not,” Sessions informed Coons. “I think we should avoid surveillance of religious institutions, unless there’s a basis to believe that dangerous or threatening illegaly activity could be carried on there.”
