What You Should Know about Muslim Ban 3.0 after Dec 4th Court Ruling

The Supreme Court issued a decision on the Muslim Ban (‘Muslim Ban 3.0’) December 4th 2017.

First and foremost, we remind our community members and supporters that this is one of many fights for social justice playing out in the federal government this week - while we are focused on the Muslim Ban, we are supportive of those who are advocating for DACA protections and those who are challenging the proposed tax plan.

Today’s developments have raised numerous concerns and questions, which we attempt to answer below. Please note that this information is subject to change based on the various legal challenges that may be advanced in court. The interpretations below can change quickly and we will update you should that happen.

As of December 4th 2017, there is no longer anything preventing the Trump Administration from implementing the Muslim Ban immediately.
