Painful SCOTUS Decision Impacts Millions, Turns Back on Lady Liberty

Painful SCOTUS Decision Impacts Millions, Turns Back on Lady Liberty

(WASHINGTON)— Kica Matos, spokesperson for the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), issued the statement below after the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold the Muslim ban:

“Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is a direct result of a GOP-packed Supreme Court that sides with the white supremacists whose mission is to divide our communities and enact policies that fuel hate and instill fear in people who look and pray differently. History will not look kindly on the conservative judges’ decision to ignore the pain and suffering of millions of families who are seeking refuge.

While we are deeply disappointed in the decision, we know the work we have to do. When the travel ban was first enacted, our communities showed up at airports—and we have consistently showed up to denounce hate and injustice, standing firm in our values of unity, family, opportunity and freedom. And, in November, we will show our might at the polls to elect leaders who reflect our principles.”
