President Trump has issued multiple executive orders trying to ban people from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States and block refugees from rebuilding their lives in the country. These policies have been rejected by the public and the courts – and Amnesty International is helping stop them from taking effect.
The intent of these policies is clear: To ban people based on who they are, not what they’ve done. It’s discriminatory and dangerous.
Amnesty International has documented the impact of the ban on people across the world, uncovering harrowing individual stories that illustrate why this ban needs to be stopped. We’ve also worked with partners to organize protests in dozens of cities around the country, and we’ve mobilized thousands of people to call their Senators and ask them to stop this ban.
This page includes actions anyone can take today to stop the Muslim Ban, as well as background on it.
