In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court on June 26th, allowed the Trump administration’s anti-immigrant Muslim Ban to remain in place. This endorsement of Islamophobia by Republican justices is shameful.
“By upholding the Muslim Ban, the Supreme Court has approved one of the many ways President Trump is waging open war on immigrant families,” said Sanaa Abrar, Policy and Advocacy Manager at United We Dream.
“Since taking office, the Trump administration has shown time and again that they are pursuing a wide-ranging agenda of racism and bigotry – separating children from their families at the border, detaining and deporting immigrants, ending DACA and TPS, building up the deportation force, and of course, banning immigrants and refugees on the basis of their religion.
“By upholding the Muslim Ban, the Supreme Court has approved one of the many ways President Trump is waging open war on immigrant families.”
“Today’s ruling will go down as one of the worst and outrageous Supreme Court decisions in U.S. history, akin to racist rulings in American history that have led to the internment of Japanese Americans and the enslavement and dehumanization of Black Americans.
“As an immigrant, as a woman, and as a Muslim, I call on all people of principle to rise up and resist. We are #HeretoStay and organizing to win – Trump may want us to retreat in fear but we #StandWithMuslims and say #NoMuslimBanEver!”
