The Arab American Institute joined over 130 organizations who signed a letter to the Senate and House Judiciary Committees calling on them to hold rigorous oversight hearings of President Trump’s three immigration executive orders - border security, interior enforcement, and banning refugees and Muslim immigrants. These executive orders created “shock waves of fear” in refugee and immigrant communities across the country, caused protests to erupt nationwide as well as around the world, and sparked litigation in courts. Furthermore, the orders implicate a broad range of constitutional and civil rights issues that will results in the devastation of American families. The Judiciary Committees must conduct rigorous oversight hearings.
