Supreme Court Allows Implementation of Trump Muslim Ban

Washington, D.C.—In response to today’s decision by the Supreme Court to allow the Trump Administration to implement its executive order banning immigrants from six majority-Muslim countries, Human Rights First’s Eleanor Acer made the following statement:

“We are disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision to allow this iteration of President Trump’s cruel and discriminatory ban to go into effect. This ban, like the president’s prior executive orders, diminish U.S. leadership in the world and undermine our national security interests.”
