Alex's (Priyanka Chopra) next target on "Quantico" won't be a rogue agent or a terrorist threat, it will be the National Exit/Entry System bill, otherwise known as S322 -- the Muslim Ban.

In this exclusive sneak peek from Monday's (April 10) new episode, Clay Haas (Hunter Parrish) explains how a recent terrorist attack on an American mall isn't really a terrorist attack at all. It's a carefully targeted political move, which is being used to force Congress to pass S322, which would target "non-citizen visa holders from 'countries of concern.'"... Countries which just happen to be exclusively Arab or Muslim, according to Clay.

How are they forcing Congress' hand, you ask? By framing Raina (Yasmine Al Massri) for the terrorist attack.

While it's obvious these "8 power players" who are framing Raina are attempting to influence politics for their own agenda, Ryan (Jake McLaughlin) doesn't seem totally on board with fighting fire with fire. CIA and FBI agents attempting to sway the vote on an important bill seems pretty sketchy, after all.

While the team heads to the Hill, we hope someone has been delegated the task of exonerating Raina in the meantime. As a devout Muslim immigrant, she is the perfect candidate for a frame job, but we're still worried that her life might be in danger. After what happened to Leon (Aaron Diaz), it seems like too much coincidence that of all the Muslim radicals they could have chosen, this group picked Raina...

"Quantico" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
