It's Up to You, Not the Courts, to Defeat the Muslim Ban
Question: Can we defeat Trump's Muslim Ban after yesterday’s U.S. Supreme Court decision?
Answer: Yes. It is up to all of us to defeat the Muslim Ban. We’ll defeat it the same way Trump's family separation program was recently forced to shut down after advocacy organizations – like CAIR - and fair-minded Americans responded to the call to action.
Just one hour after the Supreme Court's ruling, CAIR hosted a press conference at its national headquarters, just a few blocks away from the Supreme Court and Congress, declaring that the fight against the Muslim Ban, and against the Trump administration's anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant policies will continue.
CAIR and its allies nationwide are working to mobilize all Americans to defeat the Muslim Ban. We are organizing all those who value religious freedom and constitutional rights to demand that Congress pass legislation to defund the ban and further pressure the White House to grant more visa waivers.
In cooperation with coalition partners, CAIR coordinated a nationwide response that included:
- a national press conference in Washington, D.C., attended by numerous national and international media,
- a statement offered at the multi-organizational rally outside the Supreme Court following the ruling,
- more than 20 press conferences and rallies around the country,
- hundreds of broadcast media interviews that have been viewed by millions of Americans.

Historically, the Supreme Court has failed to protect minorities (Native American treaties, slavery, Japanese American internment in World War II) and change only happened through political awareness and social mobilization. That’s what CAIR is doing and planning to do. We need you and your support.
CAIR needs your financial support to fight the Muslim Ban. We are more committed than ever to fighting for your rights.
Consider giving $25, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000, $2,500, $5,000, $10,000, or whatever you can. Any contribution, no matter how small or large, is appreciated.
Thank you in advance for your support.
