“For the past four years, we have fought tirelessly for this moment. The Muslim Ban has caused irreparable violence to Muslim communities domestically and abroad. While its dark legacy will remain and must be remembered, we are hopeful to celebrate an end to this horrific ban, once and for all.” – Iman Awad, Legislative Director of Emgage Action
