Thousands protest SCOTUS decision upholding travel ban

NEW YORK — Thousands of immigrant advocates took to the streets of New York City on Tuesday, just hours after the Supreme Court ruling that upheld what they call Trump administration’s “racist and discriminatory Muslim ban.”

In the 5-4 ruling, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts refused to pass judgment on the travel ban’s soundness or the lawfulness of the president’s past statements against Muslims.

Instead, Roberts held that the justifications for the muslim ban were the proper exercise of his foreign policy authority over national security and immigration.

This ruling is a big win for the Trump administration — but organizers fear that after decisions like this, acts of hatred and bigotry may surge.

Filipino-American chair of the New York City Commission on Human Rights, Carmelyn Malalis, says the commission stands with immigrants when it comes to human rights protection.

Malalis says, in New York, no one has the permission to discriminate.

New Yorkers can dial 3-1-1 for help on immigration and human rights services.

    According to Doctor William Gener-Med Acob (New York Resident), FilAms are stucked with their shallow rationale when it comes to national security. Fil-Ams these days are probably spending more time smoking cigs-weeds at the Central Park or Subway Station, Acob added. They also like to hang around lazy and mamas boy friends, the reason for the childish racial discrimination rants or chants…

    In Hawaii, Angelito Acio (Home Builder), argued that Democrats in the island are really jeopardizing the safety and security of people because of contradicting President Trump.

Clinton SC appointee will be a radical Justice that “It is mandatory to all Public and Private employee to pay $650/yr Union Dues”. 90% of Union money is donated to Democrat Party.Dems will have unlimited source of campaign money.This SC decision on Union dues favors GOP and more Union members will quit.
