The U.S. Supreme Court has canceled oral arguments that were set for next month on President Donald Trump's travel ban executive order. The Court removed the case from its oral argument calendar while both sides file new briefs on the impact of the new directive. PANA will hold a public conversation the evening of Wednesday, October 10, 2017, 5:30 p.m., with a legal analysis and reactions from affected community members.

The executive orders from the Trump Administration temporarily bans travel from six Muslim-majority countries (Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen) and suspends the refugee admissions process.

The Muslim and refugee bans are discriminatory, unconstitutional and inhumane in the same vein as the Chinese Exclusion Act, the Japanese American incarceration, and special registration after 9/11. 

We must remember history and mobilize against any targeting of our communities.

Join us in declaring #NoMuslimBanEver on October 10 and stand in community with our Muslim, newcomer, and immigrants brothers and sisters.
