*Victory: A federal court in Hawaii ordered a nationwide stay last night on two sections of Muslim Ban 2.0: the 90 day ban on immigration from six Muslim majority countries and the 120 day suspension of the refugee admission program. In addition, a Maryland federal court imposed a nationwide stay this morning on Section 2, the 90 day travel ban. These decisions are an extraordinary development and ensure that the two key provisions of the executive order cannot be implemented at this time.
*Resistance: Around the nation, various efforts are being planned to raise awareness and protest the Muslim ban. If you’re interested in organizing your event, check out this mobilization toolkit from Church World Service which contains talking points and social media messages.
