Author and law professor Khaled Beydoun joins us to discuss his book American Islamophobia: Understanding the Roots and Rise of Fear. In this book, Beydoun looks at the scope and impact of domestic “war on terror” legislation in how it racialized Muslims and transformed everyday life within Muslim communities. How Islamophobia was built into US immigration law, and how it changed after 9/11. The strains of Islamophobia influencing Trump policies like the Muslim ban. Demographic shifts, white identity politics, and other factors driving Islamophobia today.
