Today’s Action: Pass the No Ban Act – vote is TOMORROW

The House is scheduled to vote tomorrow on the No Ban Act (“National Origin-Based Antidiscrimination for Nonimmigrants Act”), the legislative response to Trump’s bans on refugees, asylum seekers, and Muslims.

The No Ban Act is a powerful protection for both long standing American values and immigrant communities from oppressive, discriminatory acts by the federal government — and would immediately rescind Trump’s despicable bans already in place.

The vote in the House is TOMORROW. Call or email your Representative and ask them to vote YES on the No Ban Act. Remind them of all the vulnerable communities — refugees, asylum seekers, Muslims — who are being discriminated against by our president. Then, call or email your Senators and ask them to cosponsor – or thank them if they already have!

Trump has shaped global politics with his Islamophobic sentiments, and it’s long past time for Congress to step up and counter his hate-filled, terror-producing policies that have impacted and terrorized the 1.8 billion Muslims here at home and abroad.

He has terrorized, jailed, and rejected hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers at our Southern border, blocked nearly-total entry from Syria, and kept our refugee entry at less than half of the cap… all while the GOP sat back and allowed family separation and family jails.

Muslim Ban and America-first (read: White-first) were Trump’s original campaign promises, a vow to his rabid supporters that he’d keep out an entire religion of adherents and nations of immigrants. Passing the No Ban Act is the first step toward breaking Trump’s white supremacist grip on entry to our country.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Representative and urge them to pass the No Ban Act tomorrow. Ask them to stop Trump’s persecution of Muslims, immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers — and end his bigoted bans once and for all — by passing this important legislation. Then, email or call your Senators and urge them to cosponsor if they haven’t yet.
