Congressional members urge FBI to track hate crimes against Sikhs, other minorities

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Over 100 members of Congress asked the FBI Thursday to keep track of hate crimes against Sikhs, Hindus, and Arab-Americans.

The Justice Department made the same request to the FBI last December, in response to the mass shootings at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek last August.

Six worshippers were killed before the gunman, Wade Michael Page, killed himself.

Milwaukee House Democrat Gwen Moore was among those signing the congressional letter to the FBI.

The letter said that too many crimes have been committed against Sikhs, Hindus, and Arab-Americans because of their religions – and not because they were confused with Muslims.
