SUPREME COURT RULING IN FAVOR OF MUSLIM BAN SHOWS JUSTICES, TOO, ARE WILLING TO SEPARATE IMMIGRANT FAMILIES, AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS ONLY FOR SOME IN THIS COUNTRY
Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE) condemns Supreme Court decision in Trump v. Hawaii, in which the justices sided with the Trump administration, affirming its authority to restrict travel to the United States from certain predominantly Muslim countries.
The decision, written by Chief Justice John Roberts, comprised Trump’s third version of the travel ban, whose earlier versions were rejected by lower courts. The Court, by a 5-4 margin, said the ban fell “squarely” within Trump’s authority and turned a blind eye to President Trump’s numerous tweets and statements demonizing Muslims. We now see the Supreme Court joining this administration in its effort to tear apart immigrant families.

The United States to many is that beacon of light that beckons to them providing relief and solace for their restless hearts.Details
Rita Shukla was born in the countryside of São Paulo, Brazil, in a town called Campinas, on August 2nd, 1986.
When she was 4 years old, her mother put her in music lessons, where Rita learned how to play the keyboards, the piano, the organ, and how to make vocal sounds mimicking the sounds from the keys. Her favorite toy was a little recording device with microphone, and at that same age, she used to record herself singing the soundtracks of soap operas onto her dad’s cassettes. That would make her dad a little upset, but that’s how she started showing her passion for singing and the arts.Details
