May Allah bless you and your family in this holy month.
As you probably know, the deen of Allah is under attack right now in this great nation of ours.
Just this past April, Mike Pompeo, an open supporter of anti-Muslim hate groups, was confirmed as Secretary of State.
Mike Pompeo has also framed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as religious wars: During remarks to a church group, then-Congressman Pompeo said, "I can tell you that this threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the way and the light and the only answer. So, as we think about what the U.S. policy needs to be, and how we will begin to combat this, we need to recognize that these folks believe that it is religiously driven for them to wipe Christians from the face of the Earth." Pompeo also said, "...they will continue to press against us until we make sure that we pray and stand and fight and make sure that we know that Jesus Christ as our savior is truly the only solution for our world."
CAIR-NJ met with the staffs of Senators Booker and Menedez and brought these extreme views to their attention. Senator Booker used CAIR's points in his questioning of Mike Pompeo in his confirmation hearings.

Dear Community Members,
Muslim Ban 3.0 (“MB-3”) was signed yesterday afternoon. We are reviewing it to see how exactly it will be rolled out, but some general information based on what we know now is included below. Please note that this information is subject to change based on the various legal challenges that may be advanced in court. Please check back frequently for the most up-to-date information.
Part of MB-3 went into effect yesterday, September 24th. The remainder will go into effect on October 18th, 2017. Much of the old order (Muslim Ban 2.0), signed on March 6, 2017, also partially expires today. The portions of Muslim Ban 2.0 impacting refugees specifically will continue until October 24, 2017. Despite this change, the temporary court order placing the old order on hold is still active, until the U.S. Supreme Court’s hearing on October 10, 2017.
Travel Restriction for Nationals of Eight Countries - Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Venezuela, Syria, and Yemen
