WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Support the Muhannas and others facing this injustice. Take action and urge USCIS Director Alejandro Mayorkas to rein in his agency's secret, discriminatory program that directs officers to deny immigration benefits based on an applicant's religion and country of origin. Tell Director Mayorkas that CARRP is simply un-American.
