San Francisco—In an expansion of its policies that target and discriminate on the basis of national origin, faith and immigration status, on Friday the Trump administration added travel and visa restrictions to Sudan, Nigeria, Tanzania, Myanmar, Eritrea, and Kyrgyzstan. Libya, Iran, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, North Korea, and Venezuela remain subject to the original Muslim Ban.
These policies cause irreparable harm to those impacted and further marginalize communities of color. We must fight to defend the rights of everyone in our communities by working to repeal these cruel and xenophobic practices.
OneJustice stands shoulder-to-shoulder with our immigration legal services and advocacy partners across California and the rest of the country for their tireless advocacy to protect our communities. We uplift their substantive comments and explanations of the impact of this expanded Muslim Ban:
