Defund Trump's Muslim Ban
Now that the conservatives in the Supreme Court voted in favor of Trump's racist Muslim Ban, it's time for Congress to act. We demand that you support H.R. 4271 and S. 1979, which would prohibit the use of any funds or fees to implement the third and current iteration of Trump's Muslim Ban.
Why is this important?
This past summer, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Trump's Muslim Ban—giving the green light to an administration that has made xenophobia, racism, and anti-Muslim bigotry its official policy. With the Court steadily being packed with radical right-wing judicial operatives like Brett Kavanaugh, it's time for Congress to take action to undo Trump's racist agenda.
From putting migrant children and adults in internment camps to defending violent white supremacists, Trump is out of control. He spews racist, xenophobic language and pushes dangerous policies to exclude people of color from the U.S.
Meanwhile, the Ban continues to permanently block nationals and travelers from six Muslim-majority countries from coming to the U.S.—based on nothing other than Trump's bigoted campaign promise to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.
Just because Trump and the Roberts-led Supreme Court think it's OK to discriminate against people based on how they worship or where they come from doesn't mean it should be the official policy of the United States. Congress has the power to defund Trump's Muslim Ban and they should do so immediately. The bills, H.R. 4271 and S. 1979, would prohibit the use of any funds or fees to implement Executive Order 13780—the third and most recent iteration of Trump's Muslim Ban.
