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.

Community Alert: Due to an increase in anti-Muslim hate crimes please take extra precautions. Threatening mail has been received by several Masajid in New Jersey and around the country. If you receive an envelope from overseas that resembles the one below, you are advised to handle it with gloves so as to preserve fingerprint evidence, and contact your local police, as well as the NJ OHSP by dialing 211. Once the authorities have been contacted please contact CAIR-NJ at 908-668-5900.
