CMCG makes it possible for our religious leaders to speak more effectively and with one voice, especially at times of crisis to promote mutual understanding, respect, appreciation, and support of the Sacred in each other.
To further this end, CMCG has released a statement against the Muslim Ban.
The letter explaining our position on this matter is being sent to all our elected officials to help in informing and shaping their opinion about this issue. See the text of our letter below.

Dear elected officials,
As members of The Christian-Muslim Consultative Group we wish to
publicly declare our protest and concern against the current proposed ban
by the president.
It is our position that it targets those of the Muslim faith specifically, which
runs contrary to the basic American value of freedom and integrity for all.
Many of the stipulations within the ban are random and confusing
especially in regards to separating family members.
Fortunately many courts and judges have struck down the ban as being
unconstitutional which we agree is the case.
We understand it is now in the hands of the Supreme court justices and
hope that they will rule according to our Constitution and send a strong
message to our president who seems to disregard the basic rights of those
who wish to enter our country and have already established commitments
here in regards to family ties, business or are students.
It is our hope that you'll take our position seriously and that it might add to
informing you and shaping your opinion about this issue.
The Executive committee of The Christian-Muslim Consultative Group
