American citizens who are Muslims sue DHS for discrimination

According to an ACLU press release, the ACLU, NYCLU, and CAIR announced a lawsuit charging DHS with violating the Constitutional rights of American citizens who visited a religious conference in Toronto about Islamic issues. None were charged with any crime or illegal act, but all of the Muslims who allegedly were targeted for their religion were detained, frisked, photographed, and fingerprinted.

A copy of the Eastern District of New York lawsuit is available on the web. I am not planning to attend any Islamic conferences in the near future.
