The Muslim and Refugee bans are discriminatory and unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson, in Honolulu, wrote that the Muslim Ban 3.0 Executive Order “plainly discriminates based on nationality” and would be “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” The Trump Administration wants to negotiate DACA protections for building the Wall. These legislation attempts are part of a continuum of exclusionary, xenophobic and racist policies that promote white supremacy and discrimination on the basis of faith, national origin, and immigration status.

As arguments continue in the courtrooms, it is vital that communities continue to resist. Everyone has a role in defending a welcoming and inclusive America. Think you can’t do anything – you can!

Come participate in an important discussion on how we got here, what’s at stake, and what actions you can take.
