DEARBORN—On Wednesday, ACCESS’s Take on Hate campaign organized an emergency town hall in response to President Trump’s executive order on immigration.

The event, originally scheduled for the Arab American National Museum, had to be moved to the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center to accommodate the unexpectedly large turnout.

More than 1,200 people attended the town hall to listen to organizers and lawyers deliver informed comments, offer legal advice and address concerns that both affected and confused citizens had regarding the administration’s new policies.

Take on Hate’s Asha Noor served as the moderator of the event’s discussion portion. Lawyers Noel Saleh of the Arab Civil Liberties Union of Michigan, Abed Ayoub, policy director of the American-Arab Anti Discrimination Committee and Khaled Beydoun, law professor at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, each gave overviews outlining their assessment of the climate after the executive orders were issued.

Ayoub began the panel debriefing the audience on the events and chaos that unfolded almost immediately after the travel ban was signed Friday, Jan. 27, at 4:30 p.m.

The ban, he reminded the audience, affected those from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya.

“Individuals from those seven countries could not enter the U.S.,” he said, adding that “some green card holders were forced to sign abandonment forms.”

Ayoub additionally advised Lebanese audience members, some of whom came to the United States on a visa, to not return to their country of origin if they were concerned with the travel ban.

He warned that Lebanese nationals on a visa or green card may not be able to reenter.

Though Ayoub acknowledged claims that spread across social media and messaging platforms that additional countries would be added Wednesday, were rumors, he didn’t deny the possibility of an expansion to the ban.

“Additional countries can be added,” he said. “We don’t know when they’ll be added; we don’t know what those additional countries are going to be.”

However, in a Feb. 2 letter provided to Dearborn-based immigration lawyer Mohamed Elsharnoby, the Department of State stated that “there is no addendum, annex or amendment now being worked on to expand visa revocations or the travel ban to countries other than those currently implicated in the executive order.”

Elsharnoby, who shared the letter with The AANews, said frazzled and frantic Arab Americans should be relieved that said rumors are untrue.

“There are no current plans to do so, and there is nothing to worry about it,” he said.

The State Department confirmed to the American National Lawyers Association that these allegations were false.

Saleh brought a seasoned perspective to the panel discussion. Having served on the ACCESS board since 1989, he helped the ACLU coordinate legal work to Arab and Muslim communities post 9/11.

“We’ve won the first round, but we never won the battle,” he said.

Lawful permanent residents, Saleh said, were able to reenter thanks to the pushback caused by community activism in the airports on Sunday.

On the litigation end, Saleh was among those celebrating attorneys’ efforts and accomplishments during a tireless and thankless weekend.

“We filed four lawsuits in various parts of the country,” he said. “In every lawsuit we’ve been successful in obtaining a temporary restraining order requiring the government to…put on hold provisions contained in the terrorist entry memorandum.”

The importance of activism

With steadfast determination, Saleh commended the audience for “having won the first round”, but reminded them that “that’s not necessarily winning the battle.”

While his speech complemented Ayoub’s in theme, he differed slightly with him regarding of the importance of citizen protest and activism.

“The old way of doing things with activism and community engagement is not going to work,” Ayoub said. “There has to be a real strategy driven by real professionals. Anything otherwise is going to hamper our movement forward as we take these issues on.

“Litigation without activism will never be effective,” he added. “Activism — the pushback, the demonstrations— forced this administration to back off.”

For his part, Beydoun delivered a powerful oration that sought to empower and embolden the collective psyche bludgeoned by Trump’s executive order.

He issued a caveat against the impending threats of counter-radicalization policy in pitting each Muslim and d Arab against one another.

“Support of counter-radicalization is support of the Muslim ban,” he stressed.

Beydoun galvanized the qualities of self-determination and a strong sense of solidarity and identity. He called for “leadership that speaks to power, not bend before it; leadership that celebrates Arab and Muslim identity rather than emulating Whiteness; leadership that uplifts the holy segments of our community rather than snapping selfies with the highest ranking government officials.”


To summarize the Arab/Muslim “Take on Hate” actions:

  • helped put a temporary halt to the “terrorist entry memorandum” that would have stopped unvettable terrorists from entering the U.S.
  • advocated (incited?) Muslims to wage not just litigation jihad but also to take “pushback” (qital?), and
  • told the Muslim audience not to “emulate Whiteness”

That’s how Muslims take on hate? Worse, ACCESS (Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services) has received nearly $4 million in taxpayer dollars in 2017.

Total Funds Awarded – FY 2017

$3,807,104

At least $30M since 2008. The funds consisted of “Refugee and Entrant Assistance_Discretionary Grants”. In other words, Muslims are getting millions of dollars in taxpayer money to bring in more Muslims.


They have as a ‘project’ their national network, they gave $6,000 to a building fund to an Islamic center of Boston (page 43 here – pdf). Taxation for Islamization.

  1. Islam and Sharia do not belong in ANY non-Muslim culture.

    How many times do they have to prove it?

    BANNING MUSLIMS & SHARIA LAW FROM THE USA IS NOT A MATTER OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. Sharia requires the elimination of us and everything, us.

    Sharia Law is treasonous and seditious under our Constitution and laws.

    Muslims conquer when they can. If they cannot conquer, they try to appear that they have integrated . . . until it is time to conquer.’

    Islam’s secret: Hijra … jihad by immigration….immigrate and take over by population expansion.

    • Why do they have so much power in this country a non Muslim country??? I think the American people should demand and ban the Muslim body from America!!! A close review of the RFRA bill signed by President Clinton should be amended or repealed. Lift the censorship on Muslim talk about the Muslim migration into the United States. The abuse of the RFRA bill by CAIR that allows a Muslim mosque to be placed in any town against the town’s people’s core beliefs and zoning laws or face a massive law suit the towns people cannot afford. Islam was banned from the USA in 1952. The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States. That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, and in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic Immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House. Islamic immigration to the US would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US government, the Constitution, and the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principal subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government. The American people need to know there is a censorship of the migration of the Muslim body to the United States. The Wahhabi Invasion of America is alive and well and will be the end of the American core beliefs, the basic Judaea-Christian beliefs.

      • A large part of this Islamic expanse has been an appeasement issue but the greatest fault lies in “WE THE PEOPLE” stopped paying attention to what our government was doing. Many are just waking up to the Islamic issue while the Islam people have been growing and being brought in at an alarming rate.

        There is cure if one is willing, reclassify Islam as a political movement, aka sharia verse Constitution….Article 6 of the Constitution and our immigration laws can easily have all of Islam removed from our nation provided our government takes the plunge and actually allows these laws to be enacted 100%. to save our nation, will be messy but is our freedom, history, our rights verse Islamic rights the reason we protect, defend and uphold the Constitution. God Bless America & our First and Second Amendments, may they withstand the constant attacks from liberal’s and Islam.

        • I agree, Islam is a highly political organization, I have called it this for the past 17 years, Islam is a Fascist Political Ideology whose adherent’s main goal is to force their evil ideology on the whole world. I have no doubts whatsoever that in another two generations using 21 years for a generation that America wont be recognizable even as it is today, it’s not just Muslims who are the enemy, it’s the great number of fools “Useful Idiots” that supports their takeover. Another big enemy of America is the “Interfaith Movement” consisting of different denominations which includes Catholics, I suppose these deceived professing Christians have forgotten the crusades, if men like the “Hammer” Charles Martel had been like many today all of Europe would be an Islamic Hell-Hole and America would either not exist or exist as one more Muslim Hell-Hole, Muslims have Not contributed anything to this world unless one counts Terror, Bloodshed, Destruction of what others have accomplished as contributions but they do take what others invented claiming it as their own.

    • “How many times do they have to prove it” Well if almost 1400 years of committing atrocities on innocent men, women and even children doesn’t prove it then I don’t see anything happening that will prove what these Vermin are all about. I have been warning people since early 2000 17 years, look at how much they’ve advanced in America alone and many parts of Europe are lost, no possible chance of a comeback because of birthrates, I think birthrates in America and Canada are Muslims families 8 children non-Muslims 2 children. Muslim crowds are boasting in some towns and cities screaming “we will takeover because many of you are having no children we are having 8 children and with Four wives we are having 32 children. You can be assured that Muslim men in America have and are having multiple wives, this is going on under our noses because they go by Sharia Law and lawmakers in many cities and towns aren’t interested in making waves, especially when there is big money for not making waves, the big money comes from the many well funded alphabet Muslim organizations, crooked politicians and corrupt law officials love these anti-America anti-Constitution Islamic organizations. Thankfully there are some people like the people who bring us this website. What is disheartening is the great number of fools in this country that support this Muslim takeover, sickening too this includes many in different churches claiming we Christians worship the same god, how deceived, these are church members of the “Interfaith Movement” who are sponsoring Muslims to come here and placing them in every state, Muslims are anti-Christ and Allah of the Qur’an is 180 degrees from Yahweh of the Bible, Christians are commanded not to fellowship with these people, including all others who are anti-Christ

  2. Khaled Beydoun this hyper-goatfucker is thretening to go into full Taliban mode. H openly announces his intention of turning US Mohammedans into a Salafilth column (i.e. Salafi fifth column) with the pretext of combating “whiteness”.
    Thus we see how agents of Islamic imperialism latch onto the false notion that Mohammedans are on the whole a dark-skinned “race”, in order to declare ostensible solidarity with their fellow duskies. [“Duskies” is the term I propose as a synonym of “people of color”, which sounds so like pompous speechifying.] who – unlike US Mohammedans — actually DO have a legitimate gripe against the Paleface.
    Here we see a brand-new blowback conspiracy theory taking shape, where the righteous Mohammedan settlers take up the cause of their co-duskies and avenge their wrongs along with their own alleged wrongs. This is known as blowback outsourcing. The concept was introduced in Blowback Chronicles 2.
    Is this normal behavior for a tiny religious minority making up only about one per cent of the US population? More than contribute to harmony among social groups, they seem clearly intent on stoking the flames of religious conflict while conflating it with ethnic slurs.
    A religious minority in a Mohammedan-controlled country that behaved that way would be exterminated in short order.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
