Rally on Monday, March 6th at 6:00 p.m. in front of the White House
The Friends Committee on National Legislation and our partners unequivocally condemn Trump’s newest executive order on immigrants and refugees as discriminatory, inhumane, and harmful to our national security. In this sense, it is no different from the version signed on January 27th.
The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) strongly opposes President Trump’s revised executive order that will close our doors to refugees fleeing violence and persecution and bans nationals from six Muslim-majority countries, said Yasmine Taeb, FCNL's lead lobbyist on human rights and civil liberties.
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.
On February 21, the Department of Homeland Security released memorandums
instructing the agency to implement the two executive orders that scale
up immigration and border enforcement, endangering U.S. communities.
FCNL's Yasmine Taeb addressed the Trump administration's recent executive order on refugees and immigrants, as well as a planned executive order on the Muslim Brotherhood, on a panel convened by American University's School of International Service on February 13th.
Yasmine Taeb, FCNL Lobbyist for Human Rights and Civil Liberties, participated in a town hall panel and discussion on civic engagement hosted by the Next Wave Muslim Initiative (NWMI) on Sunday, February 12th.
The recent executive order suspending refugee resettlement and barring the entry of individuals from seven Muslim‐majority countries goes against our core values of welcome, religious freedom, and assistance to those most in need. Congress should act to support legislation to rescind this executive order.
