Asked about debate by GOP presidential hopefuls suggesting more stringent screening and security checks on Muslim Americans, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee who has roots in the Middle East, told reporters at a breakfast sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor that “assuming you can pick out a Muslim is pretty far-fetched.”
On Friday, December 2, 2011, U.S. Congressman Darrell Issa joined the Monitor Breakfast for a conversation with reporters.
