Hateful calls target Washington woman

Lacey, Wash. (KING) — A Lacey, Washington mother is speaking out after receiving two disturbing phone calls.

“I think it is because of my last name – Islam,” says Morshida Islam.

She says two men called her cell phone on Tuesday. She says the unknown caller ID popped up on her phone with a voice message.

It said, “Hello Morshida, This is John C. —- calling on behalf of the Donald Trump Association. I was just calling to see if I could get your support. And so we can get all the foreigners out of the country”.

The message went on for a total of 45 seconds, using offensive language. Morshida says she heard the same two voices call back a second time, and she hung up.

“I have been an American citizen for a long time. I am just like every other person here. Just because my religion or color or because I am a foreigner, they are threatening me,” Islam says.
