Amnesty International USA: Court Ruling Shows New Refugee Order is More of the Same Hateful Bigotry

March 11, 2017

Following a ruling by a federal judge in Wisconsin temporarily blocking President Trump’s revised Muslim ban from applying to a Syrian man and his family, Margaret Huang, executive director Amnesty International USA had the following reaction:

“No amount of revision will change the fact that this ban is nothing more than anti-Muslim bigotry dressed up as policy. This order continues to tear families apart and cause needless pain and anxiety for thousands of people. It is the same hate and fear in different packaging. We urge Congress to end this legal purgatory and repeal the ban once and for all.”
