In the days after Trump announced his inhumane, poorly drafted, discriminatory, and deeply unconstitutional “Muslim Ban,” tens of thousands took to the streets to declare that Muslims, refugees, and immigrants are welcome in our America. As refugees and legal permanent residents were detained at airports, stranded in a Kafkaesque limbo, unable to return home or start their new life in the US, tens of thousands of people flocked to airports to demand their freedom.
The people have spoken, But Congress must listen!
The people’s leadership has caused members of both parties to condemn Trump’s executive order. But we need more than words, we need action! Senator Chuck Schumer is expected to demand tonight the Senate vote on a bill rescinding Trump’s executive order. It is urgent that you call now.
Urgent: Call your Senators now and tell them:
Support legislation to rescind Trump’s Muslim Ban
Block the vote on Jeff Sessions’ nomination until the ban is lifted
Call the Capitol Switchboard at: 202-224-3121
Call your Senators at 202-224-3121.
Jeff Sessions, Trump’s nominee for Attorney General, was reportedly involved in the drafting of the Muslim Ban Executive Order. With over 180 other organizations, we have written to Senator Grassley, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to urge him to hold an additional hearing to allow Senators to understand what role Sessions played in developing the Muslim Ban policy before any vote on the nominee.
Already, popular mobilizations have scored key victories against Trump’s Muslim ban. If we organize, we can win. But only if you make your voice head!
