Americans United for Separation of Church and State today denounced an executive order issued by President Donald J. Trump that has the effect of shutting down our borders to refugees and immigrants from Muslim-majority nations.
“President Trump just acted to fulfill his promise to ban Muslim refugees and immigrants,” said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. “He has abandoned our nation’s commitment to religious freedom, and he’s turning away those seeking safe harbor and a better life. This action is fundamentally un-American.”
