WASHINGTON (TUESDAY, JUNE 26, 2018) -In response to the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling that upholds President Donald Trump’s Muslim travel ban, Gustavo Torres, Executive Director of CASA, issued the following statement:

“The Supreme Court’s decision enables the Trump administration to continue discriminating and demonizing our communities.

Their choice to side with a xenophobic and racist agenda puts the lives of all minority communities in peril.

This ruling violates one of this nation’s core principles that religion should not be a reason to discriminate. We will not accept this and will continue fighting until this country accepts and respects human rights and freedom again.”
