Court Ruling Welcome But Only Congress Can Permanently Repeal Muslim Ban

February 9, 2017

Following the ruling of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Margaret Huang, executive director of Amnesty International USA made the following statement:

“This ruling is obviously a relief, but it won’t end the turmoil and uncertainty that this inhumane ban is causing for thousands of families,” said Margaret Huang, executive director of AIUSA. “We’re concerned by reports that some border patrol agents are still subjecting people entering the U.S. to discriminatory and unlawful treatment, and we fear that the Trump Administration may find other ways to discriminate based on religion. Congress must step in and end this dangerous and discriminatory ban once and for all.”
