Amnesty Reacts to Poll Showing Majority of Americans Disapprove of Muslim Ban

February 7, 2017

Reacting to a new Quinnipiac University poll showing a majority of Americans disapprove of President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban, Margaret Huang, Amnesty International USA, released the following statement:

“The more people learn about Trump’s Muslim ban, the more they oppose it. From polls to protests, the message to Congress is clear: Step in and block this Muslim ban now. In a matter of days, the Muslim ban has torn thousands of families apart, created chaos in the country’s airports, and stirred fear for Muslims living in the U.S. This ban is dangerous and discriminatory, and Congress has to put a permanent stop to it.”
