A Protest Against Anti-Muslim Plano City Council Member

A Plano City Council member is under fire after posting a video to Facebook calling on President Donald Trump to "ban Islam in American schools."

The video, posted Tuesday night by Tom Harrison, first elected to an at-large spot on the council in 2015, rotates through several photos of happy school kids, apparently suggesting that some of them are Muslims or are otherwise promoting sharia law in American classrooms.

The mayor asked for the council member’s resignation at 2 p.m. today during a press conference at city hall. Protestors gathered out front of Dallas City Hall. Photos by Brian Maschino
