Amnesty International USA: Congress Must End Legal Battle Over Muslim Ban

March 17, 2017

Following President Trump’s appeal against a ruling by a federal judge in Maryland blocking the revised Muslim ban, Margaret Huang, executive director Amnesty International USA, had the following reaction:

“President Trump’s Muslim ban remains indefensible, no matter how many times it is brought to court. Like the previous order, it subjects people to discriminatory and unlawful treatment. A prolonged legal battle over this ban will create more uncertainty for families around the world. Congress must intervene and pass legislation to permanently override this order.”
