February 26, 2017: Detained?
Muhammad Ali’s son, Muhammad Ali Jr., was detained by immigration officials at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on Feb. 7. The boxing legend’s son was questioned about his religion and ancestry. Jr. and his mother, Khalilah Camacho Ali, were returning from a Black History Month event in Jamaica, according to the family friend, Chris Mancini. Camacho Ali was released shortly after they were detained after showing a photo of herself with her ex-husband, but Ali Jr. reportedly remained detained for approximately two more hours. Ali Jr., 44, is a native-born U.S. citizen.
