Rapid Response Protests Against Today's Anti-Muslim Supreme Court Ruling
It’s a dark day in American history. The Supreme Court just allowed the Muslim ban to continue.
In a 5-4 ruling, justices sided with this cornerstone of Trump’s discriminatory immigration policy. The latest version of the ban limits entry to the United States from citizens of five Muslim-majority countries in addition to a miniscule number of North Koreans and Venezuelans.
Let’s be clear: This is a loss. But this isn’t the end of the fight -- we’re committed to taking down this discriminatory ban on every front – in Congress, in the courts, and on the streets.
That’s why we’re organizing nationwide rapid response rallies and community forums across the country in the coming days – and we need as many people as possible to be part of them.
This isn’t the first time the Supreme Court got it wrong. In 1944, the Supreme Court ruled in Korematsu v. United States to allow the government to rip Japanese Americans out of their homes and imprison them based on false claims of national security. It’s one of the most shameful chapters of U.S. history – and now the Muslim ban decision joins it. History will judge today's decision harshly.
But I have hope. It’s ultimately the people of this country who’ll determine its character and future. In the first 24 hours of the Muslim ban, two of the defining themes of the Trump presidency emerged: Trump’s determination to stamp anti-Muslim bigotry into national policy, and the key role of mass organizing and civil protest in stopping him.
Together we can defeat the Muslim Ban – and leave Trump’s entire racist agenda in the dust. We will continue fighting on every front, including Trump’s cruel ‘zero tolerance’ policy that’s to blame for thousands of children being held in detention centers, ripped away from their parents at the border.
Let’s keep up the fight. The lives of immigrants, and the fate of our democracy,
depends on it.
