Immigration Nerds Talk with Sirine Shebaya of the Organization Muslim Advocates about the “Muslim Ban”

In this week’s Immigration Nerds podcast, we talk to civil rights attorney and interim legal director of Muslim Advocates Sirine Shebaya. Sirine discussed their work related to Executive Order 13769, the Muslim Travel Ban, family separation at the border, and the experiences and rights of detainees. Recent data shows an 84% decrease in permanent resident visas issued to Muslim immigrants over the last year; Sirine speaks to this matter and how her group is working to protect the religious rights of citizens in this country.
