Supreme Court Decision in Trump v. Hawaii

26 Jun 2018 11:18 PM | Anonymous

For Immediate Release:

Today the Supreme Court in a 5-4 ruling upheld the third iteration of the Muslim ban in Trump v. Hawaii, thus allowing the President to partially fulfill his campaign promise of “...a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States…” While this is a definitive loss, there is something to be said for the fact that this decision was made on the third version of the Muslim Ban. It was mobilization, quick high-impact litigation, and protest that had an impact in fighting these executive orders.

The Muslim Ban is an abandonment of our founding values as a nation. Since the implementation of this Ban, we have prevented families from war-torn countries to be reunited, students from seeking an education, talented scientists from sharing their research, and stopped people with serious illnesses to seek treatment. This is not who we are. We call on Congress to address any ambiguity in the Immigration and Nationality Act so that no person is prevented from coming to America because of their nationality or religion.

Although this is a troubling decision, we must stay committed as a legal community to challenging and making our voices heard on issues threatening all communities. As we reflect on the ramifications of this harmful decision, please join us at a community forum Thursday, June 28th at 7pm to discuss the implications of the Muslim Ban. This is co-sponsored by MUBANY, the Council on American Islamic Relations New York (CAIR-NY), and the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU).  To learn more and to register please click on this link: https://go.peoplepower.org/event/action/14497?source=map&akid.

    A bookshelf should be accessible in the house since it may pull in understudies towards the books which may overhaul their getting execution. Proximity of a bookshelf in the house is a certified assistance for adolescents. https://www.rcstandcom.info/

    I think, Donald Trump should change his strategies to get the attention and support from others otherwise his haters will increase quickly who are already in millions. I wanted to visit https://www.topreviewstars.com/best-resume-writing-services/ for my political papers help. I think, this is the time to think about competing with corona virus instead talking about political fights. so all politicians should change their minds including president Trump.

    The request introduced nerves anyway I checked out this inquiry in the wake of listening the message and getting a few pointers. You can also visit https://icasinoreviews.info/pay-per-call-online-casinos/ site at anytime for fun and for getting a lot of money. I discovered impressive arrangements in the wake of looking generally this request on net requesting the fitting reaction from it from two or three master men.
