On Wednesday, December 6, the Washington state chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Washington) will join a coalition of organizations for #NoMuslimBanEver rally in downtown Seattle tomorrow. This week the U.S. Supreme Court stayed federal court injunctions that had, until today, largely prevented the Trump administration from implementing Muslim Ban 3.0’s visa restrictions.
Although this decision allows Muslim Ban 3.0 to go into effect now, the court could still find it unconstitutional at a later date. The rally is timed to coincide with the 9th Circuit Court’s Hearing of Muslim Ban case Hawaii v. Trump.
The rally will begin at 12:45 pm and includes representatives from communities impacted by The Ban, religious leaders and legal experts. A group reading of portions of the Constitution, First Amendment and a statement by Gordon Hirabayashi — who defied the federal government’s internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II — is also planned.
The rally will end at 2:00 PM in time for the 9th Circuit Court hearing which is from 2:00–3:00 pm at the Nakamura Courthouse.
“This ban has caused extreme hardship among American Muslims in our community, cutting them off from their families and furthering the bigoted and discriminatory policies and agenda of this administration,” said Jasmin Samy, CAIR-WA Civil Rights Director, “We stand together against this threat to our nation and the civil liberties of our communities.”
CAIR-WA encourages anyone who thinks they may be impacted by the Muslim Ban to contact the civil rights organization at: 206-367-4081 and firstname.lastname@example.org.
