We Will End the Muslim Ban & Stand with Immigrants

January 29, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

On Saturday the 28th we woke up to the horrifying news that the US was denying entrance to refugees who had been vetted and approved to come to our country.

We went to sleep knowing that – for the moment – refugees cannot be turned back without having their cases fairly heard.

This is due to the ACLU’s amazing legal work which resulted in a temporary stay against the deportation of anyone who would’ve been allowed in before Trump’s anti-Muslim anti-refugee executive orders.

It’s also because YOU came out to march in Newark Liberty Airport and joined protestors around the country to call out President Trump’s unconstitutional and unconscionable Muslim Ban.

It’s also because a BRAVE team of volunteer lawyers at EWR swiftly jumped in to defend and protect the rights of detainees leading to the release of two detained individuals.

Sunday we continue our fight! We will not rest until all of President Trump’s racist, unconstitutional and unconscionable policies are permanently reversed.

Join us at the Elizabeth Detention Center where every day asylum seekers fleeing violence are detained to continue our fight and stand together. #NoBanNoWall
