WASHINGTON, D.C., March 7, 2017 – Today, Rameez Abid, Communications Director of ICNA CSJ, stood with faith leaders in front of the White House to condemn the second version of President Trump’s fear based Executive Order (EO) targeting Muslim majority countries. The press conference was arranged by Faith in Public Life.
Numerous reports have pointed out that not a single terrorist attack has taken place on U.S. soil from any of the citizens from the banned list. The EO makes no sense at all and does not help make America safe. A fact sheet prepared by Amnesty International lists at least seven harms that come out of this new Muslim ban.
We stand with the faith leaders and strongly demand that President Trump immediately rescind this new order. A summary of the new ban was prepared by Immigration Lawyer Afia Yunus and can be viewed here.
