    Tell Congress: Thoughts and prayers are not enough. Repeal Trump's hateful Muslim ban now.

    Our hearts are broken. Donald Trump's racist rhetoric has emboldened white supremacists worldwide.

    The white nationalist who just attacked two New Zealand mosques and murdered 49 Muslims praised Trump in his manifesto.1 This massacre serves as a painful example of what happens when white supremacy and anti-Muslim bigotry go unchecked.2

    Right now, we need to do everything we can to stand with our Muslim friends and family members. One way to show our solidarity is to double down on our push to repeal Trump's Muslim ban. Demanding that Congress repeal the ban is an important step to curbing the crisis of white nationalism.

    Many U.S. officials and members of Congress have issued statements extending their condolences to the victims' families in New Zealand. But thoughts and prayers are an inadequate response to this terrorist attack. Trump and his hate are at the center of this tragedy. Any politician who truly cares about stopping anti-Muslim violence should condemn Trump's racist rhetoric and block his hateful policies.

    Trump is nothing if not persistent in his crusade to institutionalize his white nationalist agenda. Two of his signature policies – the Muslim ban and asylum ban - stem from a bigoted desire to divide and keep out communities who threaten the white supremacy at the core of his administration.

    This Muslim ban is tearing apart Muslim families at U.S embassies scattered around the world – and out of sight of most Americans. Some people locked out by the ban qualify for waivers that would allow them to re-enter the country and reunite with their families, but reports of the government denying people's waiver application even though they meet every criterion are growing.3 We cannot allow Congress to ignore Trump's attacks on Muslims any longer.

    Rep. Judy Chu and Sen. Chris Murphy have reintroduced legislation that would declare Trump's Muslim ban unconstitutional and bar him from using federal funds to enforce it.4 This bill moves the fight to repeal the ban one huge step forward. Congress should approve it and work to pass legislation that would completely strike it down.

    This week was another painful reminder of the high price of enabling white supremacy. Congress must take action to stop Trump's racist anti-Muslim administration now.

    Tell Congress: Thoughts and prayers are not enough. Repeal Trump's hateful Muslim ban now.

    Thank you for all you do.
