H08 mosque on fire

In Texas, a mosque went up in flames just hours after President Trump signed Friday’s executive order. Police have opened an arson investigation into the fire, which completely destroyed the Islamic Center of Victoria around 2 a.m. on Saturday. Meanwhile, a Massachusetts man faces hate crimes charges after he kicked and mocked a Muslim woman wearing a hijab in a lounge at JFK airport in New York. Police say the man shouted, “Trump is here now! He will get rid of all of you!”
