Religious organizations condemn Trump's expected orders on refugees
by Caitlin Dickson
Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders gathered at the national headquarters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Washington, D.C., Wednesday to condemn expected orders by President Trump that would stop the resettlement of Syrian refugees in the United States and impose travel restrictions on visitors from several other Muslim countries.
CAIR co-founder and executive director Nihad Awad said that such action, which Trump has yet to formally announce but which he repeatedly endorsed during his presidential campaign as a national security measure, "does not make our country safer."
Rather, Awad said, "it will hand a propaganda tool to our enemies who promote a false notion of an American war on Islam."
