USA: Protesters put pressure on Supreme Court to end Muslim ban

Protesters called for an end to the 'Muslim ban' on the eve of a Supreme Court hearing on the case 'Trump v. Hawaii' in Washington D.C. on Wednesday. Activists from several prominent Muslim advocacy groups condemned the ban at the event. Nihad Awad, Founder Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said the White House was damaging its standing abroad by saying «Muslims are not welcome... Еще». Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal was equally critical. «It is a false choice to say that somehow our national security depends on banning Muslims. That is just playing to the racism and the Islamaphobia that is already out there,» she said. Justices will hear arguments from the state of Hawaii, which has accused US President Donald Trump's administration of discriminating against Muslims and claims the executive order passed in 2017 was unconstitutional. As it stands, the controversial travel ban prevents nationals of six Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
