This morning, the Supreme Court upheld Trump's Muslim Ban under the false guise of national security. From the beginning of his campaign, Trump has called for a Muslim Ban and attempted numerous times to implement a policy that is clearly fueled by hate and Islamophobia. The United States Supreme Court has a long and shameful history of allowing discriminatory policies against minorities to stand, and today's decision will be discussed in history books along with Dred Scott v. Sanford, Plessy v. Ferguson, Korematsu v. United States, and others as one of the worst civil rights rulings of all time.

Adding insult to injury, today's decision spends time repudiating the Korematsu decision, which allowed Japanese internment camps during World War II, but goes to length trying to explain how Trump's Muslim Ban is different. It's not different. Justice Sonia Sotomayor rightly notes in her dissent that the majority is simply repeating the mistakes of Korematsu by taking the government's misleading statements about national security at face value, rather then the clear discriminatory nature of the ban.

Join us and other immigration organizations and allies to declare that we #StandWithMuslims and #NoMuslimBanEver. Today's emergency rally will be at Foley Square at 6 PM tonight (6/26).
