Meck Democrats slam Trump's Muslim immigration ban

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on Saturday sued the Trump administration on behalf of two men who were detained at an airport while traveling back to the US because of President Trump's immigration crackdown.

There are fears on both sides of the Pacific that the executive order signed by President Donald Trump to ban visitors from seven predominantly Muslim countries will adversely affect America's tech industry. In a draft dissent memo, the State Department officials condemned the order, saying that it does not do anything to make the U.S. safer.

The organization says the order targets Muslims, and that refugees will be sent back to their homelands, where they face violence and possible death.

President Trump's travel ban caused confusion this weekend in airports across the globe.

"The Muslim Exclusion Order is the as‐promised outcome of Defendant Trump's hateful, year-long campaign which was fueled, in significant part, by a desire to stigmatize Islam and Muslims", it said.

"People have questions as to whether or not they should travel, they're concerned, they're anxious about what's going to happen next", said Hiba Rahim, CAIR Florida's Northwest coordinator.

The ban includes seven countries; Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. They're feeling it right now, and these people have done nothing wrong.

ACLU legal director David Cole said his group is preparing an Establishment Clause challenge to the order that will argue there is "copious "smoking gun" evidence that the president intends to disfavor Muslims on the basis of their religion" by way of the order.

"So we are seeing that the people do not support this ban; the people stand with immigrants and refugees", she added. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the unsafe threat it poses, our country can not be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.

Here are some snippets of the pro-Muslim waves of solidarity that Americans have put on full display over the last four days.
