Des Moines, IA – Connie Ryan Terrell, executive director of Interfaith Alliance of Iowa, released the following statement in response to Donald Trump’s plan to ban all Muslims from entering the United States:

“The Interfaith Alliance of Iowa is horrified and disappointed in statements by Donald Trump to ban Muslims from entering the United States. It is simply unacceptable for a candidate for the presidency to make such inflammatory statements that are based in bigotry and hatred about people for one religion. Our country is based in religious freedom and the statements by Trump are abhorrent,” stated Connie Ryan Terrell, executive director of Interfaith Alliance of Iowa. “Interfaith Alliance of Iowa stands with our Muslim neighbors and friends in demanding that Trump retract his statements and apologize to Muslims across Iowa, the nation, and the world.”
