The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the President has the authority to ban travelers from certain Muslim-majority countries, a practice which has been implemented since December, if the President deems necessary for reasons including national security. This precedent-setting decision opens the door to discrimination against people based on their race, religion, ethnicity, or country of origin.
While the Supreme Court has said that the policy is within the scope of Presidential authority, they declined to comment on the soundness of the policy. Now is the time to speak out about our values of welcome and religious freedom.
We urge Congress to support policies that demonstrate love for our neighbors without exception.
Ask Congress to rescind the President’s travel ban.
