Stop Muslim Ban 2.0
On March 6, President Trump signed a revised version of the Muslim ban executive order from January. But make no mistake: This new executive order still discriminates against Muslims and bars refugees from entering our country.
This isn't the first time we've seen a Muslim ban from the Trump administration. In January, President Trump issued an executive order halting refugee admissions and effectively banning Muslims from seven countries. After states filed lawsuits -- arguing that the order violated the U.S. Constitution -- a federal court suspended it pending further review.
Now President Trump is trying to circumvent the court’s decision by signing a new version with only superficial changes. The revised executive order addresses due process concerns for permanent legal residents and people with existing visas, but it still maintains a list of Muslim-majority countries whose residents are barred from entering the United States.
Make sure your members of Congress know that minor tweaks to the old order aren’t enough. We will continue to raise our voices in opposition until our nation actively welcomes refugees and people of all faiths.
