Khan Breaks Silence on Canada Travel Cancellation

Gold Star father Khizr Khan has finally broken his silence on why he wouldn't travel to Canada earlier this month-- and why he won't travel abroad.

"Have you even read the United States Constitution?"

His voice echoed around the word. But so did his silence after cancelling the Canada trip. Finally, in a Friday afternoon email to this reporter, Khan explains: "I did not want to go through the hassle of uncertain rules and capricious implementation."

Khan also expressed his concern about Muslim profiling with the local bar association.

"Seeing things like Muhammed Ali Jr. being detained. Muslim but American citizens being detained at the border."

That's lawyer Lloyd Snook, who explains:

"Basically, there is no Fourth Amendment protection at the border."

A reporter sought but didn't receive a comment from U.S. Customs & Border Protection, and Khan says he won't go abroad until there's clarity.
