Commissioner Bratton fires back at Ted Cruz in defense of Muslim-American officers
NEW YORK — There are more than approximately one thousand members of the NYPD who happen to be Muslim. Many are members of the department’s Muslim Officers Society. Detective Ahmad Nasser, originally from Yemen, is among them. “We're not new to the country. I've been here for 30 years myself. My family before me has been here for more than 70 years,” said Detective Nasser.
