TRENTON - Dozens of Muslim leaders held a summit with law enforcement officials in Trenton today to discuss the recent report released by the NYPD about surveillance on Muslims.
The NYPD released a 60-page report detailing the surveillance of mosques and Muslim-owned businesses, including some in Newark.
While a number of New Jersey state officials and federal officials attended the closed-door summit, no one representing the NYPD was in attendance.
The NYPD has defended its actions as legal and not secret, but Newark Mayor Cory Booker and Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) have condemned the NYPD's surveillance program.
At the summit, many leaving the meeting say they were satisfied with the results, even though no guarantee was offered by state and federal officials for an investigation into the NYPD's actions.
