Friday, June 29th at 11:30 am Carolina Peace Center held a press conference to show support to Muslim Americans and Muslims standing up against religious bigotry and racism.
The Carolina Peace Center called the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Donald Trump’s travel ban, which prohibits travel from seven countries — most of them majority-Muslim, shameful and Islamophobic. This shameful and biased ruling enforces Trump Administration’s xenophobic, Islamophobic and anti immigrant agenda.
The Supreme Court sided with fear, racism, Islamophobia xenophobia and against the American ideals of religious freedom and tolerance. The Trump administration’s travel ban was never about keeping America safe. We need only look at Trump’s own words to understand that this has always been a racist and anti-Islamic attempt to ban Muslims from entering this country. America loses when we become divided by religion, race, national origin or sexual orientation. We are stronger when we come together.
