U.S. Congress: Rescind the Muslim Ban Immediately #NoMuslimBanEver
0 have signed. Let’s get to 50,000.
The Trump administration has once again rolled out a new version of its Muslim ban, although this time it has no end date.
The American people rejected Trump’s bans and rallied at airports across the country in January. Several court decisions have struck down Trump’s un-Constitutional and un-American attempts to turn the President’s campaign promise of “a total and complete shutdown of all Muslims entering the United States” into policy.
Yet, the Trump administration will not halt its discriminatory pursuit. Now, we have to take action to ensure that Congress stops shirking its responsibility and steps up to end Trump’s ban once and for all.
On Oct. 18th, the day the new ban goes into effect, fifteen national organizations from across the country – ACCESS, American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International USA, Arab American Institute, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, Council on American-Islamic Relations, Iranian American Bar Association, Muslim Advocates, Muslim Public Affairs Council, National Immigration Law Center, National Iranian American Council for Action, National Network for Arab American Communities, Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans and South Asian Americans Leading Together – will be gathering in Washington, D.C. to deliver a joint Change.org petition calling on Congress to halt the ban once and for all.
Be a part of this vital effort – sign the joint petition from these national organizations today in order to stop Trump's ban!
We, the undersigned, stand in opposition to the Muslim Ban and all efforts to discriminate against Muslims or anyone else based on what they look like, where they come from, or how they pray. We call on members of Congress to fulfill their duties and immediately pass legislation to rescind the unconstitutional Muslim ban and make absolutely clear that such attempts to target Muslims, or anyone on the basis of national origin, are unlawful. While this case is being considered by the Supreme Court, Congress has an important role that it must play to fulfill its duty to protect the most fundamental and sacred American rights and values. Congress has had more than nine months to act to prevent xenophobic and racist campaign promises from being adopted as official, government sanctioned policies. They have failed to act.
We call on Congress today to rise to the challenge of putting country before politics and to protect the rights of all people living in the United States by defending the Constitution and by rejecting the “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” from forever being enshrined in history books as the official policy of the United States.
We stand for a vibrant and diverse country in which religious liberty and equality under the law are fully realized. Congress must act to protect these values.
