The press release;

On Wednesday, Muslim Advocates released the following statement from Madihha Ahussain, special counsel for anti-Muslim bigotry, in response to President Trump’s attacks on Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib at a campaign rally in Greenville, NC, which incited the crown to chant “send her back”:

“Recently, a single tweet from the president caused Congresswoman Omar to receive death threats. Today, the president of the United States continued to endanger her life, Rashida Tlaib’s life and the lives of all American Muslims when he rattled off a list of racist, anti-Muslim smears about Omar and Tlaib to a crowd of thousands that chanted ‘send her back.’

American Muslims need true allyship now more than ever. Since Trump’s first campaign, Muslims have been banned, discriminated against, profiled and targeted at home, at school, at work, in the streets and at houses of worship.

The Constitution makes clear that America is a land of religious freedom for all yet President Trump wants to deny that freedom to American Muslims and is putting this already imperiled community in even more danger.

The president’s open, calculated, anti-Muslim bigotry is something we expect to see much more of throughout the 2020 campaign. All Americans, including all Democrats and Republicans, should unequivocally and immediately disavow this hatred.”
