"This watered down ‘Muslim Ban 2.0’ was revised to achieve the same unconstitutional policy outcome as the first deeply flawed executive order, said CAIR-LA's Executive Director Hussam Ayloush." "We believe this desired policy outcome is fulfilling Trump’s campaign pledge of banning Muslims from entering the U.S. This order continues to criminalize Muslims and does not make America any safer."

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.
