On May 9, the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Houston) released a report detailing a more than 50 percent increase in anti-Muslim bias incidents in 2016 over the previous year. CAIR’s new report indicates that the spike in anti-Muslim incidents was accompanied by a 44 percent increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes during the same period.
The report, titled The Empowerment of Hate, primarily focuses on 2016, but also contains data on cases documented by CAIR during the 2014-2016 period.
