We are all Libyans! We are all Somalis! We are all Sudanese!
We are all Syrians! We are all Yemenis!
We are all refugees!
We are all banned from United States of America!
On January 27, 2017 President Donald Trump singed a temporary ban on entry into the United States the citizens of seven countries including Iran. By wholesome ban of the citizens of these countries, he has violated the rights of millions of people by discriminative approach. Despite his justification, it does not make America safe and certainly not great!
Additionally, Social media accounts are being checked for political views in the wake of President Donald Trump’s immigration ban. Very similar to the policies imposed by most autocratic governments.
According to all accounts none of the nations listed in the executive order have ever committed a terroristic act in the USA.
But fortunately for us, civil society is stronger than ever today in America. And we are hopeful.
We join the millions marching in streets of US, to lend our support to our brothers and sisters in condemning this draconian rule.
We will march in the streets until this ban is rescinded.
