We Fought Trump’s Muslim Ban – And Won!
Here’s some much-needed good news: A federal appeals court has just agreed with Americans United that President Donald Trump’s ban on Muslim immigrants violates fundamental constitutional protections. The ban remains on hold while litigation continues!
Officials in Washington State and Minnesota challenged Trump’s executive order that imposed the ban. Although AU did not initiate this litigation, we did file legal briefs in the case, explaining that the Trump ban clearly violates the First Amendment by imposing ill-treatment and discrimination on Muslims for no reason other than their religious beliefs.
that religiously based discrimination is
simply not acceptable in America!
When candidate Trump began talking about his Muslim ban, AU vowed to oppose it. I’m glad we were able to fulfill that promise.
This legal fight will undoubtedly go on – but for now, Trump is on the losing end. With your support, we’ll help keep him there.
