Following a federal judge’s decision denial of a motion regarding the Trump administration’s planned implementation of the Muslim and refugee ban, Naureen Shah, Amnesty International USA senior director of campaigns, released the following statement:

“The Trump administration’s plans to implement the refugee and Muslim ban are cruel to families and puts thousands of lives at risk. With this ban the U.S. is turning its back on the world’s most vulnerable people including families and others fleeing war, violence and torture. It also allows a policy built on bigotry and discrimination to stand. No part of this ban is reasonable and it must be stopped. Congress must step in now and end this cruel and discriminatory ban once and for all.”
