Today’s Action: Overturn the Muslim Ban through legislation

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has affirmed and solidified Trump’s Muslim Ban 3.0 (officially known as the Travel Ban). The ban indefinitely halts travel to the U.S. from five Muslim-majority countries (Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia).

The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment prohibits our government from discriminating against any religion, and Trump’s earlier versions were blocked by lower courts due to the transparent nature of his Islamophobic intentions. But Trump successfully won over the right-leaning Supreme Court by removing exacting religious language in previous versions and throwing in bans for Venezuela and North Korea. Except that only government officials from Venezuela are banned from travel…and North Korea was already banned.

With the conservative Supreme Court behind Trump’s policy, we must turn to Congress for the checks and balances our nation so desperately needs and demand legislation overturning this historically oppressive ban.

Call or email your Members of Congress and demand they push legislation to overturn Trump’s Muslim Ban — now and in their 2019 agendas.

Trump’s crusade against Muslims is unfounded in reason and fact, spreading rabid hatred for a sweeping category of peoples and countries responsible for exactly zero acts of terror in the United States.

You read that right. Zero people have been killed in America by nationals from the countries in Trump’s ban.

The ban isn’t just unconstitutional (despite Chief Justice John Roberts’ willfully blind decision) — it also breaks international law on multiple fronts. And even if it were legal, Trump’s Islamophobic agenda has actually caused a spike of violence in the US, sparking increases in hate crimes against Muslim Americans.

And speaking of violence, three of the affected countries are war-torn…meaning Trump’s ban effectively uses Islamophobia to cut down on refugee assistance (in three conflicts the US has had a hand in exacerbating, no less).

We must stand up for these millions of Muslims – students, professionals, and families just trying to survive – and demand Congress proactively fight Trump’s campaign against Islam by passing legislation to overturn the Travel Ban.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they make overturning the Travel Ban a priority for midterm elections and the 2019 Congressional agenda.
