New Justice Department policy will ban profiling

The United States Department of Justice will soon institute a nationwide policy banning federal enforcement agents from conducting investigations or surveillance for no other reason than a particular religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, The Dallas Morning News reported on September 26.

One example of this policy in action is that federal agents would not be allowed to conduct surveillance on an Islamic mosque unless evidence existed that criminal activity was actually going on there. The sources further noted that an exemption will not be included for national security investigations, even with national security officials and administration officials lobbying for the exemption due to terrorism concerns.
