WASHINGTON – In response to recent proposals to block Muslims from immigrating to the United States, Rabbi Jack Moline, executive director of Interfaith Alliance, released this statement:

“A country that discriminates against individuals on the basis of their faith would be a poor excuse for America. Rooting our nation’s immigration policy in religious bigotry and discrimination will not make America great again.”

Interfaith Alliance celebrates religious freedom by championing individual rights, promoting policies that protect both religion and democracy, and uniting diverse voices to challenge extremism. Founded in 1994, Interfaith Alliance brings together members from 75 faith traditions as well as those without a faith tradition to protect faith and freedom.
