Target: U.S. District Court Senior Judge James L. Robart
Goal: Support the decision to block Trump’s ban on immigration from 7 predominantly Muslim countries.
Trump’s executive order preventing people from 7 largely Muslim nations from entering the U.S. is now blocked nationwide after a federal judge put a restraining order in effect. Trump’s decision, widely referred to as the “Muslim ban,” was met with outrage due to its clear violation of what America stands for–the executive order revoked visas, blocked immigrants, and cut off refugees. Thankfully, the voices of Americans who oppose the ban are being heard through petitions like this one at ForceChange, and are finally being acted on.
Judge James L. Robart of Seattle, WA put a nationwide restraining order on this immigration ban, which will block the ban until the judge has considered a legal challenge filed by the attorney general. This move is a victory for the constitution and for justice. Sign below to support Judge Robart’s decision to block the immigration order, and encourage the immigration order to be rejected indefinitely.
Dear Honorable Judge Robart,
The temporary block on President Trump’s executive order to cut off all entry to the U.S. from 7 predominantly Muslim countries is a step in the direction of justice and respect of the Constitution. America is a country of immigrants, and the discrimination against these countries along with the disregard for the lives of thousands of refugees is inhumane.
The restraining order may only be in effect while a legal challenge filed by the attorney general is considered, but it is a move in the correct direction, and we must continue down that path by undoing the immigration order permanently. Thank you for your commitment to honor and justice, and please continue to stay true to those values.
