Hey guys! If you haven’t been living under a rock, you have heard of Trump’s decision to ban immigrants and refugees from certain Muslim majority countries. The heartwarming part has been to see all the people protesting this decision and standing up for the democratic values this nation was based on. Here is a link to Haute Hijab’s Melanie’s blog. She had laid out what the ban entails and practical steps on what we can do now. Now is the time Muslims in America need to band together, it’s no longer an “middle eastern” problem. It’s an affront to democracy as we know it.
The plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty reads: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Let’s make America great together.
