(NEW YORK, NY) – Following a filing by the Department of Justice to an appeals court weighing President Trump’s Muslim ban, Naureen Shah, director of Amnesty International USA’s Security With Human Rights program, released the following statement:

“President Trump continues to defend his indefensible Muslim ban as more and more Americans are rejecting it. From polls to protests, Americans are sending a clear message to Congress: Step in and block this Muslim ban now. Congress must intervene immediately and stop this once and for all.”
