Statement on the Supreme Court Decision Upholding President Trump’s Muslim BanJune 26, 2018
Five Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court allowed Trump’s Muslim Ban to go into effect this morning, refusing to acknowledge the Order for what it plainly is: scarcely disguised Islamophobia in service of cynical political ends.
The President’s contempt for those whose skin color and religion are different from his own is palpable, betrays our Country’s founding principles, and has devastating real-world consequences both at home and abroad. But this fight is far from over. We can—and will—continue to push back against these vile policies, both in the courts and beyond.
