Dear Community Members:    Community Advisory: Muslim Ban 3.0: What You Need to Know

On December 4, 2017, the Supreme Court of the United States issued a stay of two lower court injunctions which had halted much of Muslim Ban 3.0 from taking effect. This means, that as of Monday, nothing is stopping the Trump Administration from fully implementing every provision of the Muslim Ban. While this is certainly disheartening, it is not the end as the CAIR community will continue to challenge this unconstitutional executive action in court.

TIMING

As of Monday, December 4, 2017, there is nothing from stopping the Trump Administration from enacting the ban immediately.

WHO IS IMPACTED

North Korea and Venezuela were already previously impacted and now Travelers from – Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen will be effected in various ways.
