Editor’s Note: The note below was distributed by the DC Justice for Muslims Coalitions. Collective Action for Safe Spaces is proud to be part of the Coalition. We hope you will join us in rallying against these unjust bans.
At 11:30 AM this morning, President Trump signed an Executive Order putting Muslim Ban 2.0 into effect. The new ban, which advocates are vowing to fight, blocks non-citizens from Sudan, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen from entering the United States for 90 days. Additionally, refugees are barred from entering the country. The new #MuslimBan excludes Iraq on the list of countries from which entry is halted and also refrains from singling out Syrian refugees in particular. Despite these changes to the new Executive Order, make no mistake, that this Ban is designed to continue the precedent of the War on Terror as a set of laws and policies that target Muslims while relying on the rationale of collective responsibility.
We will fight back until #MuslimBan 2.0 is revoked. Want to help us and take action against #MuslimBan? Join us tomorrow, Tuesday, March 7th, at Customs and Border Protection at 8 AM for a rally.
