CAIR is calling on Americans of all backgrounds to contact their elected representatives to oppose Trump’s reckless change of policy on Jerusalem.

In a statement reacting to the president’s expected announcement on Jerusalem, CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said:

“President Trump is drastically changing a long-standing Middle East policy that was supported by world leaders and members of his own party. This new policy will harm our relationships with our Muslim allies and damage our nation’s strategic foreign policy interests.”

La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
