NALP Statement on the Revised Travel Ban

September 25, 2017

Yesterday, the Trump administration once again tried to flex its xenophobic muscle by announcing a revised Muslim and Refugee Ban.

No one is fooled by the administration’s addition of North Korea and Venezuela to six Muslim-majority countries. This is a poorly veiled attempt to discriminate against Muslim-majority countries and target the American Muslim community.

The New American Leaders Project stands with all immigrant communities in opposition to the ban and to the repeated assault on new Americans. Every attack strengthens our resolve to hold our rightful place in America and to work together across ethnic lines to build a more inclusive democracy.
