Yemenis who left everything behind to come to the US have been stuck in Malaysia for months because of the discriminatory Muslim and Refugee Travel Ban.

1) TAKE ACTION
Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Urging the US embassy in Malaysia to process the Yemeni nationals’ diversity visas to the US despite the travel restrictions in place;
  • Calling on the US State Department to make an exception for processing these applications despite the annual cap on diversity visas.

Contact these two officials by 6 November, 2017:
