Amnesty International USA Reacts to Ninth Circuit Arguments Regarding Muslim Ban

February 8, 2017

“The Trump administration is claiming absolute power to assault human rights in the name of security,” said Naureen Shah, director of Amnesty International USA’s Security with Human Rights program. “This is nothing more than a cruel attempt to write anti-Muslim bigotry into law, and it should not stand.”

“While the legal process plays out, Congress has the power to repeal this policy once and for all. The Senate must act immediately.”
