"The Trump administration seems committed to undermining the U.S. Constitution by pursuing another Muslim Ban Executive Order," said Faizan Syed Executive Director of CAIR-MO. “This order is not about making Americans safer – which has been debunked by the Department of Homeland Security – it’s about pandering to the Islamophobes that make up Trump’s base and have invaded the administration”.

White House adviser Stephen Miller told Fox News that the new Muslim ban will "have the same basic policy outcome."

“The MacArthur Justice Center is outraged by the hateful and prejudicial actions taken by our President that continue to seek to ban Muslims from entering our country.  We stand with our friends and colleagues at CAIR – as well as all immigrant and other families impacted by these senseless directives – that needlessly divide and violate human rights.  We also stand ready to litigate.”  -- Mae C.  Quinn, Director, MacArthur Justice Center at St. Louis

At its news conference, CAIR-MO will discuss "Register Me First" (#RegisterMeFirst) website, produced in partnership with a Los Angeles-based design and technology studio Use All Five, to challenge President Trump's Islamophobic policies, including the Muslim ban and a proposed "Muslim registry."

Registermefirst.com will provide an opportunity for anyone who wants to oppose the Muslim ban, any future Muslim registry or other unconstitutional actions by the Trump administration to join the broader movement challenging those unjust policies.

Last month, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit upheld a lower court's ruling putting Trump's original Muslim ban on hold.
