Today’s Supreme Court’s decision to uphold Trump’s Muslim ban (Trump v. Hawaii) enshrines bigotry into policy under the pretext of national security. Yet, this is not the first time the Court has been wrong or on the wrong side of history: in 1944, SCOTUS upheld the imprisonment of more than 120,000 Americans for their Japanese ancestry. As history repeats itself, this ruling will be condemned by future generations as a betrayal of the promise of equality and justice for all.

There is NO plan for reunification; there is NO clear tracking system for the children that were already forcibly stolen from their families; and there is NO plan to stop criminalizing asylum seekers at the border. We need the "zero tolerance" policy on border crossings to end NOW.
