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.
