ACLU... Fighting for the Rights of Non-Citizens

(Via: LGF) The ACLU is suing the government because they won't allow a man named Tariq Ramadan into the country.

Ramadan was blocked from accepting a tenured teaching position at the University of Notre Dame when his visa was revoked in August 2004 because of a provision of the Patriot Act, said Jameel Jaffer, an ACLU staff attorney.

The way this is worded, it makes you think the patriot act created a crack that just arbitrarily revoked Ramadan's visa for no reason. Then we learn about Ramadan's past, no thanks to the AP reporter writing this story (can anyone say 'bias?'). In fact, the story reads more like a letter of recommendation for Ramadan, and condemnation for the U.S. government, rather than a serious objective news piece.
