    CAIR-LA is a grassroots civil rights organization that has worked with the Greater Los Angeles Area Muslim community - a community that numbers some half a million people -- for more than two decades. As its founding executive director, Mr. Ayloush brings unique insight into the struggle for American Muslim civil rights and will guide us through the ways in which that struggle intersects with the broader discussion around immigrant communities in the United States. This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Office of Public Events and Community Programs.

    The xenophobic rhetoric of the 2016 presidential election has only intensified since Donald Trump took office, and campaign promises have manifested into tangible policies and executive orders that have stalled immigration applications, torn families apart, grounded travelers, and instilled fear in entire immigrant communities throughout the nation. As minorities, Muslims have not been the only target of such attacks, but their vilification has not only persisted; it has become ever more pronounced. Consider, for example, how Trump's campaign promise to build a "wall with Mexico" has been eclipsed by his repeated attempts to instate a so-called Muslim Ban. As a frequent commentator on American Muslim issues, including in mainstream U.S. media, Hussam Ayloush will trace the evolution of Islamophobic policies from the fringe to the mainstream. This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Humanities Institute.
