“After the initial Muslim Ban, the Muslim community in Southern California saw a tremendous outpouring of support from our elected officials, the interfaith community and individuals from every walk of life,” said Hussam Ayloush, CAIR-LA Executive Director. “Our collective response to Muslim Ban 2.0 should be no different, because this administration’s Islamophobic motivations for the ban have not changed, and only together can we overcome it.”
