U.S. City Elects All Muslim Officials

Objectivity 4.0 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.8

A city in Michigan known for its large immigrant population became the first in U.S. history to elect all Muslim officials to its city council. Hamtramck’s newly elected Council members insisted that they would not allow Islam to influence their governing decisions. As the number of Muslims being elected to governing positions increase, some argue Sharia law could replace the U.S. Constitution.
