A Ban is a Ban
We have seen over the last few weeks that the Trump administration leads with hate, fear, and deception. This modified Muslim ban is no different.
Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric has created an atmosphere which emboldens bigots and incites violence – as we have seen from an uptick in hate crimes, including two instances of hate-motivated shootings of Indian men just this week. We should all be outraged and ashamed by this administration’s attempts to cement its power through the relentless persecution of refugees, some of the world’s most vulnerable people, and Muslims, who already face great discrimination.
We stand with Muslim youth and condemn any attempts to vilify them and strip them of their rights.
