Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Thomas Perez is seen at the Education Department in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 22,,2011, after the second annual Federal Partners in Bullying Prevention Summit. Lawmakers have called on the Justice Department to investigate the New York Police Department intelligence program. Perez, the head of the Civil Rights Division, said Thursday he was reviewing the request, but he repeatedly refused to answer when asked if, like the NYPD documents obtained by the AP, the Justice Department considered “American Black Muslim” to be an “ancestry of interest.” (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin) less
