The Muslim Ban: How we got here and where we go next

The Muslim Ban: How we got here and where we go next On the campaign trail, Donald Trump promised a "Muslim Ban." Well, he just delivered. On January 27, Trump issued a sweeping ban, "temporarily" stopping immigration from 7 Muslim majority countries, as well as the refugee settlement program. Syrian refugees, who are among the MOST in need, have been prohibited from coming to the United States, indefintely. This will not be the only action Trump takes against Muslims, American or otherwise. It is also far from the first time Muslims have been scapegoated in this country. Our panelists are Mehreen Kasana, a journalist writing about race and religion for outlets such as The New York Times and The Los Angeles Times, Moustafa Bayoumi, professory at Brooklyn College and author of "This Muslim American Life," Arun Kundnani, scholar-in-residence at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, New York Public Library, and author of "The Muslims Are Coming!" and Fahd Ahmed of Desis Rising Up and Moving (DRUM). Maryam Jamshidi, Muftah's editor-in-chief, will moderate a dicussion about the roots of the Muslim Ban, what comes next, and what we can do to fight back against anti-Muslim bigotry.

People's Congress of Resistance

"The corrupt U.S. Congress represents and serves the already-rich and is regularly paid off by the 15,000 lobbyists who constitute a shadow government in Washington. It is not and cannot be the voice of the people. It is dominated by two corrupt political parties – neither of which is truly representative of the people.

The People's Congress of Resistance will be the voice of the people – an expression of direct democracy of those who are left out and kept out of the Congress of plutocrats."

Make the Road NY

"Make the Road New York (MRNY) builds the power of Latino and working class communities to achieve dignity and justice through organizing, policy innovation, transformative education, and survival services."

Democratic Socialists of America

"The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA's members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly democratic socialist presence in American communities and politics."

Party for Socialism and Liberation

"The Party for Socialism and Liberation believes that the only solution to the deepening crisis of capitalism is the socialist transformation of society. Driven by an insatiable appetite for ever greater profits regardless of social cost, capitalism is on a collision course with the people of the world and the planet itself. Imperialist war; deepening unemployment and poverty; deteriorating health care, housing and education; racism; discrimination and violence based on gender and sexual orientation; environmental destruction—all are inevitable products of the capitalist system itself."
