Jim Sensenbrenner — the Wisconsin Congressman who widened the powers of law-enforcers to fight terrorism by authoring the Patriot Act — says a 2011 order that prohibits the FBI from entering mosques should be lifted.

"It certainly sets Islamic places of worship at a level that is different from places of worship of any other religious denomination, whether it be Christian or Jewish or Hindu or whatever and that shouldn’t be the case," Sensenbrenner told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Investor's Business Daily reported Thursday that since October 2011, mosques are off-limits to FBI agents, with surveillance and undercover stings banned unless they are approved by a special oversight body at the Justice Department.

The newspaper said the ban was enacted under pressure from Islamist groups who complained about FBI stings — even though the agency launched many successful operations against homegrown jihadists in mosques and foiled numerous plots.

"You shouldn’t say that a certain denomination's place of worship is a sanctuary," Sensenbrenner said.
