A senior Justice Department civil rights official plans Wednesday to visit the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn and meet with Arab-American and civil rights leaders to discuss civil rights concerns, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The official, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, will also attend a press conference on Wednesday where Detroit U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade will announce the formation of a civil rights unit, the Free Press reported.

The paper reported that Imad Hamad, regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, who will be part of the meetings said of Perez: “We welcome him. It’s part of an important dialogue that is needed.”
