Numerous news outlets across the nation are running an article on the suggestion that "More American Muslims are entering the legal profession."
"In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks, Muslims in America faced heightened scrutiny. Federal agencies began questioning and detaining Muslims. Some were deported. Many had a hard time boarding a plane. Others were too nervous to leave the country for fear they wouldn't be allowed to return."
A prospective Muslim-American lawyer noted, "Being Muslim in this country, with everything that happened, it just seemed like we needed Muslim lawyers and we needed to defend ourselves."
