Emgage, a Muslim group that calls itself as the most significant Muslim political action committees in the United States, announced their support formally to the former Vice President Joe Biden as he vows to end President Trump’s travel ban on several majority-Muslim countries. Emgage previously supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. As Bernie announced his withdrawal from the race and endorsed Joe Biden, the Emgage group also threw their weight behind the presumptive Democratic nominee this week. Their endorsement also marks several other reasons supported by Biden, like the reforms in the immigration system, raising the refugee admissions cap.
CEO of Emgage PAC, Wa’el Alzayat, said - “Our nation and indeed the world are at a crossroad. Beyond the immediate devastation caused by the coronavirus, the people of America are facing an all-out assault against democratic principles and values at home and abroad that we have never seen since the rise of fascism and Nazism since the early 20th century. We need a leader who can restore America’s promise to its citizens, especially its most vulnerable and to the world, Joe Biden is one such leader, and we will need his leadership in this kind of crises.”
Responding to the endorsement, Biden said - “I’m honored to receive the endorsement of Emgage PAC. From small business owners creating jobs to health care officials who are fighting coronavirus on the front lines, Muslim-Americans contribute to the fabric and success of the country daily. As the President of the United States, I will stand up for every Muslim community across America. I’ll also immediately revoke President Trump’s Muslim ban.”
