Following a federal judge’s decision to block the Trump administration from implementing the latest travel ban, Naureen Shah, Amnesty International USA senior director of campaigns, released the following statement:

“This ruling will provide hope to thousands of people across the world. It’s a blow to the Trump administration’s attempts to tear families apart and block people fleeing horrific violence from gaining safety.  This cruel and bigoted ban remains as senseless as ever. President Trump cannot continue to demonize people based on where they come from or how they worship. The Trump administration must end this legal battle and abandon the Muslim ban.”
