Muhammad Ali Jr. Detained Again at Washington Airport

A month after he was held and questioned by immigration officials at a Florida airport, Muhammad Ali Jr. was reportedly detained again Friday.

Ali Jr. was apparently detained on a flight heading from Washington, D.C., to Fort Lauderdale, according to a tweet from the account of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.

The tweet read, “On way home on DOMESTIC FLIGHT Muhammad Ali Jr. detained AGAIN by @DHSgov. Religiously profiling son of ‘The Greatest’ will not make us safe.”



The tweet included a photo of Wasserman and Ali Jr. on a plane.

Ali Jr. and his mother, the second wife of Muhammad Ali, were in Washington to testify before Congress. Ali Jr. told members of Congress on Thursday the government needs to help end racial and religious profiling.
