A Texas mosque was set on fire just hours after Trump signed an executive order restricting migration from Muslim-majority countries.

The Islamic Center of Victoria was set on fire around 2 a.m. on Saturday, according to local reports.

Since the election in November, there has been an increase in hate crimes across the country. In the one month following the election, the Southern Poverty Law Center found over 1,000 reports of hate incidents.

A significant number of these are anti-Islam in nature.

The fire in Victoria comes just three weeks after an Islamic Center under construction in Austin was set on fire and destroyed.
