“This executive order, like the last order, is still in it’s effect, a Muslim ban, which we believe is discriminatory and unconstitutional,” said CAIR Cincinnati Executive Director Karen Dabdoub.
“As Trump administration officials have stated, this ”˜Muslim Ban 2.0’ – which has been debunked by the Department of Homeland Security – appears to be merely a retooled order aimed at the same long-stated goal of banning Muslims from entering the United States,” said CAIR National Litigation Director Lena F. Masri, Esq.

White House adviser Stephen Miller told Fox News that the new Muslim ban will “have the same basic policy outcome.”
CAIR recently launched a “Register Me First” (#RegisterMeFirst) website, produced in partnership with a Los Angeles-based design and technology studio Use All Five, to challenge President Trump’s Islamophobic policies, including the Muslim ban and a proposed “Muslim registry.”
Registermefirst.com will provide an opportunity for anyone who wants to oppose the Muslim ban, any future Muslim registry or other unconstitutional actions by the Trump administration to join the broader movement challenging those unjust policies.
Last month, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit upheld a lower court’s ruling putting Trump’s original Muslim ban on hold.
