Huffington Post reports that many religious groups view Trump’s revised Travel Ban as a “Muslim ban in disguise” (see: A Look At Trump’s Revised Muslim Ban).
Calling the executive order a “Muslim Ban 2.0,” the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) states that “this executive order, like the last order, is at its core a Muslim ban, which is discriminatory and unconstitutional.”
Many Jewish organizations have denounced the ban. T’ruah, The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights, said in a statement that the new executive order is “more of the same Islamophobia that targets Muslims. The Jewish community understands all too well the danger of compromising the civil liberties of any national, ethnic or religious group, or of holding entire groups collectively responsible for the actions of individuals. Today’s executive order undermines our values and weakens the moral fiber upon which our nation stands.”
Church World Service, a Christian coalition that assists the government with refugee resettlement, announced that it “strongly decries” the president’s executive order. “Make no mistake: this rewritten version will have the same impact, while avoiding the court proceedings that kept the initial executive order from being implemented. It is a refugee ban. It is a Muslim ban.”
