Do MSP Taxi Drivers Violate Law?

Reader comment on item: No Islamic Law in Minnesota, for Now

Submitted by John G. Terino (United States), Oct 16, 2006 at 11:28

The Muslim taxi drivers at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport are licensed by either the city or state. By refusing a fare they are discriminating; licensed public service provides are not allowed to discriminate. Each time a fare is refused the should be charged with a civil rights violation.

Because they are handling people from outside the area, a case might be made that they in viloation of Federal civll rights laws.

And, because they are part of a system that provides transportation to people from all over the nation and world, they may be interferringwith interstate commerce and fedral laws and sanctions in those areas may apply.

This needs to be nipped in the bud. Where is the ACLU filling suit against the Muslim taxi drivers at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for discrimination and violating the rights of travelers.
