A new national survey conducted by Marist College’s polling operation shows that a 52 percent majority of US voters believe the Republican tax reform proposal will negatively impact their personal financial situation.

“There was never any indication he would do this. I think it’s a conspiracy. A person who keeps roza (religious fasting in Islam), reads the Koran and goes to mosque five times a day can’t do such a heinous act,” Haider said.

“The reality is we began to see this as a human rights issue,” Oliphant said. “We were never satisfied with a lot of the data we got [from Immigration Canada]. It was data that felt old and was extrapolated from other issues.”
