(FARMINGTON HILLS, MI, 12/4/17) – The Michigan Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, is deeply concerned over the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to allow President Trump’s “Muslim Ban” to be implemented until the court makes a final decision about the executive action’s constitutionality.
In an order issued today, the US top Court stayed the Hawaii and Maryland federal courts’ injunctions. Those injunctions, until today, largely prevented the Trump administration from implementing Muslim Ban 3.0’s visa restrictions.
While this decision allows Muslim Ban 3.0 to go into effect now, the court has not yet ruled on whether the overall ban is constitutional, a decision that could come later.
“The decision of the Court today ignores the very real human consequences from the implementation of the ban which will separate families” said CAIR-MI Staff Attorney Amy Doukoure. “This decision is a blow to our community, but the fight is not over, we will continue to resist the unconstitutional acts of this administration” she continued.
CAIR is America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
