Through an executive order issued Friday, January 27, Trump barred citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US for at least the next 90 days, including immigrants from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen. Trump also stopped the admission of all refugees to the United States for four months. A senior White House official said that this is likely just a first step toward establishing a broader ban.
Please make these points in your phone call and/or emails:
- We urge you to refuse compliance with the ban on refugees in a stand against racism, xenophobia and Islamophobia.
- We urge you to refuse compliance with Trump's executive order banning immigrants from 7 Muslim-majority countries.
- We, in the San Francisco Bay Area will fight to remain a sanctuary city and will not allow people to be racially profiled based on national origin. We have no tolerance for racism, xenophobia or Islamophobia.
- We know that many people, are fleeing for their lives in large part because of US policy and military action in their countries of origin. Turning them away, could mean a death sentence.
