NAKASEC Condemns Supreme Court Upholding Portions of Muslim Ban

Annandale, VA NAKASEC is extremely disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold portions of President Trump’s travel ban.  Although two federal appeals courts have blocked this Islamophobic and racist executive order, people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen now will be barred from entering the U.S. for 90 days if they do not qualify for a “bona fide relationship” exception. NAKASEC remains united with our Muslim brothers and sisters and calls on the Supreme Court to rule against the executive order in its entirety when it hears oral arguments this fall.
