Tell Congress: Push Back on Trump's Bigoted Muslim Ban

Kahn
Donald Trump's newest Muslim ban is only slightly different from the last one. People from six majority-Muslim countries are being blocked from getting visas to the United States, and the refugee program is still being suspended.

The Supreme Court may be allowing some of his ban to move forward, but we are not letting up - contact your members of Congress today!

The chaos that ensued at borders when the initial ban was implemented showed a complete breakdown of civil rights and common human decency. People were denied access to legal counsel, mothers were separated from their infant children, and people were kept at the airport for dozens of hours without access to food or water.

In addition to people vigilantly opposing the Muslim ban in the courts and in the streets, Congress has the ability to restore basic decency and undermine Trump's new Muslim ban. Progressive members of Congress, like Representative Pramila Jayapal, have introduced legislation that seeks to reverse some of the more heinous acts happening at our borders due to Trump's policies.

Please restore common decency by supporting legislation that guarantees access to legal counsel to those held while entering the U.S., mandates an expedited process, and assures access to food, water, and restroom facilities.

The legislation would guarantee access to legal counsel, require access to an attorney before one can relinquish one's legal status, and ensure basic needs (such as access to food and water) are met while being held. Senator Kamala Harris of California has introduced similar legislation in the Senate.

It's time for Congress to affirm the civil liberties we hold dear and restore common human decency by supporting this bill. Tell your member of Congress to oppose Trump’s racist Muslim ban and support legislation that ensures these detainees are treated with respect and an expedited process.
