It's a question I've grown to ask on a daily basis: President, WYD?
The Trump administration's new Muslim ban uses violence against women in Islam as part of its supportive data.
Section 11 of their document is described as:
Changes made to the Muslim ban now block immigrants from six nations instead of the original seven, which included Iraq.
The ban does not affect permanent residents or current visa holders, and includes a 120-day freeze on immigrants entering the country. A religious test created to determine entry was also removed.
The changes were made to avoid the appearance of a religious bias.
The new Muslim ban is set to go into effect on Thursday.
Advocates for women who have been victims of these crimes aren't buying Trump's newfound concern for their safety.
Over 50 organizations have called out the ban for suggesting that violence against women is exclusive to Islam.
Human rights organization, Amnesty USA, wrote a letter addressed to President Trump detailing the reasons why the new Muslim ban will hurt and not help women and girls. They wrote,
The letter also discusses how gendered violence is America's problem, too.
Amnesty kept it cordial and classy, but I'll go ahead and ask another question that needs asking:
Will the self-proclaimed "pussy grabber" address his own violence against women and the violence he's inspired in the United States?
We should kinda-sorta get that together, too.
