NJ Attorney General Visits Paterson Mosque As Part of Outreach

New Jersey’s attorney general has visited another mosque as part of an ongoing effort to improve relations with the Muslim community.

Jeffrey Chiesa attended Friday services at The Islamic Center of Passaic County in Paterson.

New Jersey officials have been working to repair relations between Muslims and state law enforcement in the wake of revelations that the New York Police Department conducted secret surveillance of Muslims in New Jersey and elsewhere.

The Paterson mosque is led by an imam who federal authorities have been seeking to deport.

Immigration officials have sought unsuccessfully to tie Mohammad Qatanani to Palestinian terrorist groups.

Gov. Chris Christie and New Jersey law enforcement officials have long supported the imam.

Qatanani is a member of Chiesa’s newly-formed Muslim outreach committee.
