Repeal Trump's Anti-Immigrant Bans
The Trump presidency has wreaked havoc on the lives of millions of people and their loved ones, both inside and outside the country.
We can put an end to Trump's discriminatory bans and help prevent the government from abusing its power in this way in the future through the NO BAN Act. This bill would rescind President Trump's Muslim, refugee, and asylum bans – including the expanded Muslim ban, targeting predominantly Africans, that was issued just a few weeks ago. It would also help prevent the government from enacting discriminatory bans in the future.
One of Trump's first acts in office was to fulfill his campaign promise to ban Muslims from entering the United States. He did this by issuing an executive order banning the entry of nationals of certain Muslim-majority countries. In response, people around the country and members of Congress flooded airports in outrage, awaiting the release of those detained.
Trump responded to subsequent legal challenges by trying to dilute the original ban, adding countries that are not Muslim-majority or splitting off the refugee ban in a separate order. Emboldened by his ability to continue his ban, he has now expanded the Muslim ban, targeting predominantly Africans. Despite these efforts, Trump couldn't hide his true agenda: to exclude large numbers of Black and brown people from coming to the United States.
These bans have torn apart the fabric of our communities. They've crushed the dreams of families who are separated, people seeking life-saving health care treatment, and those pursuing educational and career opportunities. They put people's lives in danger. And they don't reflect the kind of country we want to be.
Now is the time to raise our voices and make clear that we will not live in a country that bans Muslims, Africans, refugees, and asylum-seekers. Add your name demanding that Congress pass the NO BAN Act without further changes.
