Dear fellow MoveOn member,
Donald Trump just signed an executive order banning immigration from at least seven majority-Muslim countries and freezing our refugee program for at least 120 days.1
While the Trump administration has backpedaled on his call for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States"—realizing the weakness of his mandate and the unpopularity of his policies—it's clear that these orders are driven by a deep-seated, almost maniacal anti-Muslim hate that has captured Trump and his Cabinet.
And his call to block Syrian refugees—some of the most vulnerable people in the world—is shockingly morally bankrupt, even for someone like Trump.
We reject targeting of anyone based on their religion or where they come from, and we call on members of Congress to go on the record and reject Trump's Muslim ban.
—Linda Sarsour, MPowerChange
