Tell President Trump We Stand With ALL Refugees
UPDATE: On Monday, March 6, President Trump signed a revised version of the Muslim ban executive order originally signed on January 27th that created chaos at airports across the country and was ultimately blocked by the courts. The revised order is simply a new version of Trump’s extreme executive order banning immigration from Muslim-majority countries and halting the refugee resettlement program.
Let’s be clear, the revised executive order It is still a Muslim Ban. The reality is that the Muslim ban remains inherently flawed, unconstitutional, and does not make our country safer. We must send a strong and unwavering message to the Trump administration that our community opposes any policies that discriminate against Muslims, refugees, and immigrants.
On Friday, January 27, President Trump signed an executive order that slashes refugee admissions from 110,000 to 50,000, suspends visas for refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries and ends the Syrian refugee program entirely.
This executive order puts into action President Trump’s un-American promise to impose a Muslim ban and goes against our ideals as a country.
This executive order turns our back on refugees who have experienced unimaginable violence and persecution. Our country was founded on the ideal that we welcome the world’s most vulnerable, regardless of their faith. These xenophobic policies dishonor our history, beliefs and values and make us less safe.We will not stand idly by while our leaders promote fear instead of guiding us into a brighter, more inclusive future. We will continue working towards an America that lives by the values it was founded on and is welcoming of all people .

We stand with the American people in strong opposition to the President’s executive order, which turns our backs on Syrian, Iraqi and other Muslim refugees at the very time when they are most in need of safety. We must continue to offer a safety and protection to vulnerable populations, regardless of their religion or country of origin.
