President Trump has signed a new Executive Order, which reinstates harmful measures that discriminate against nationals, including refugees, from six Muslim-majority countries. It also temporarily stops refugees from any countries from resettling in the US.
This Executive Order could affect families who have escaped the rubble of Aleppo, or fled war and famine in Yemen. These are people fleeing conflicts and other serious threats, and they deserve protection.
It is time to call on the President to stop abusing his power, to uphold the US’s commitments to the world’s most vulnerable refugees and to end the discriminatory travel ban. Show the President that there is a massive groundswell of global support for refugees and against discrimination.
Email President Trump now and tell him that the US government must revoke this discriminatory Executive Order.
Update 15/03/2017: A ruling by a federal judge in Hawaii blocking President Trump’s revised Travel ban. Please continue to take action because as long as this hateful policy remains, it will continue to be fought in courts while thousands of people and families are trapped in uncertainty. Congress can end this by passing legislation that effectively nullifies the ban. This decision against the ban tells us what we already know: this is anti-Muslim bigotry falsely packaged as security. Hatred won’t make us safe. The ban must be repealed now!
