Standing tall to resist the new Executive Order

Dear Friend,

The White House has issued a new Executive Order on immigration and refugees. Compared to the first EO, this new action: (1) removes Iraq from the “list of seven” countries previously included under the ban, and (2) adds a 120-day hold on all refugee processing, leaving many at risk who fear for their lives or their family’s safety. The new EO goes into effect on March 16th—ten days from today. 

So what does this mean? Between now and March 16, everything remains the same. After March 16, it is important to remember that past court orders remain in effect and individuals with valid entry documents should be able to continue entering the United States. Although it is difficult to know how the Order will be implemented, we will be here gathering information and ready to help with any problems.

Make no mistake: this ban, like the last one, is still unconstitutional and still targeting people who most need our assistance. It is a grievous affront to the values we stand for and the America we know. We expect a fight, and we need you to be ready to fight too. We’ve heard it time and time again as travelers leave baggage claim: seeing the wall of lawyers and other volunteers standing tall means the world.

Sign up for a volunteer shift at Dulles to say loud and clear: our country is better than this. We are better than this.

In solidarity,

Sirine Shebaya
