CAIR goes right after Trump; announces what it’s doing about the new order to halt refugees

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is set to take on President Donald Trump and his administration after he signed an executive order to halt immigration from certain Middle East nations.

CAIR said on its website that it will hold a press conference on Monday to announce the lawsuit.

“There is no evidence that refugees – the most thoroughly vetted of all people entering our nation – are a threat to national security,” CAIR National Litigation Director Lena F. Masri, wrote. “This is an order that is based on bigotry, not reality.”

“The courts must do what President Trump will not—ensure that our government refrains from segregating people based on their faith,” added Attorney Gadeir Abbas.

“Our First Amendment is under attack. We, as attorneys, are foot soldiers of the American Constitution and took an oath to protect all from being targeted by the government because of their faith,” another attorney, Shereef Akeel, said.

CAIR’s claim that the refugees are “thoroughly vetted” is in contrast to FBI Director James Comey’s admission that the refugees were not able to be properly vetted.

And the ban is not unprecedented.

Perhaps America’s most liberal president in history, Jimmy Carter, not only banned Iranians but also moved to deport Iranian students.
