Obama Nominates First Muslim American to Be a Federal Judge

President Barack Obama made history Tuesday, nominating the first-ever Muslim-American to serve as a federal judge in the U.S. capital, according to a new report.

Abid Riaz Qureshi, who the commander in chief nominated to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, is a partner in a Washington law firm that specializes in false claims, health care fraud and securities violations.

“I am pleased to nominate Mr. Qureshi to serve on the United States District Court bench,” Obama said in a statement, the Huffington Post reported. “I am confident he will serve the American people with integrity and a steadfast commitment to justice.”

However, it is unlikely Qureshi’s nomination will get off the ground. Senate Republicans have promised not to hold any hearings on nominations since the president’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to the U.S. Supreme Court in March. The nomination was intended to fill the seat vacated by late Justice Antonin Scalia, who died earlier this year.

Isn't Muslim-American an oxymoron?

I'm pretty sure of what it means:

Muslim American means he is a Muslim first.
Then, an American so long as it doesn't conflict with his Muslim-ness.
