CAIR is asking Americans to call on members of Congress to oppose this unconstitutional executive order by making statements, by writing dear colleague letters and by pushing the Trump administration, State Department, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Justice (DOJ) to oppose such discriminatory policies.

Trump recently said the order banning travelers from seven predominant Muslim nations is a "necessary action" to protect religious freedom in the U.S. – characterizing Muslims as “those who would seek to enter our country for the purpose of spreading violence, or oppressing other people based upon their faith or their lifestyle.” He added, “We will not allow a beachhead of intolerance to spread in our nation."
