The press conference would be held on the day of the announcement, which could come as soon as Friday, Jan. 31. Updated information would be sent out the day of the announcement and posted to social media.
WHAT: Press conference if Muslim Ban expansion is announced featuring CAIR-SV and allies

Monday was the three-year anniversary of Trump’s original executive order, which in its current iteration restricts travel from five Muslim-majority countries – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen – along with North Korea and Venezuela.
The expansion could add six more countries to the list, according to reports.
Earlier this week, CAIR and other organizations took part in a court hearing and rally in Richmond Va., challenging the Trump administration’s Muslim Ban based on its discriminatory intent.
CAIR-SV/CC is an office of CAIR, America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.
