Do Burka! Wearing Need to be Completely Banned in US?


Is wearing the Burka in public permitted in the USA?

Yes, it is legal to wear a burka (or burqa) in the United States.  It is protected by the First Amendment.

There are a few times when the burka must be removed, however, such as when being photographed for a passport, driver’s license, or other official identification.

Most agencies follow guidelines similar to Illinois’ rules on removing a burka for a driver’s license or State ID photo (the hijab, or hair covering, may be left on, but the face must be visible).

Anti-mask laws in the US are generally used as an aggravating factor to enhance penalties when the masks are worn while committing crimes.

For instance, if a person wears a mask while committing what would otherwise be a misdemeanor battery, that crime can be prosecuted as a felony (aggravated battery).
