Trump Must Drop Defense of Discriminatory Muslim Ban

June 12, 2017

Following the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against President Trump’s discriminatory Muslim ban, Margaret Huang, Amnesty International USA executive director, released the following statement:

“It’s always been crystal clear that this policy is discriminatory and cruel at its core. Rather than keeping anyone safe, this ban demonizes millions of innocent people and creates anxiety and instability for people who want to visit a relative, work, study, return to the country they call home, or just travel without fear. The Trump Administration must drop all defenses of this bigoted ban. If they won’t drop their appeals, Congress must step in and nullify this order once and for all.”
