Statement: U.S. Court of Appeals ruling on Trumpâs âanti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-people of colorâ executive order
Washington, DC, February 9, 2017âThe National LGBTQ Task Force is releasing the following statement in response to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruling on President Donald Trumpâs anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant and anti-people of color executive order.
âDecent people across the nation and around the world will be relieved to hear of this ruling. It reaffirms the idea that Executive Orders that promote religious hatred and thinly veiled racism are completely unacceptable. The ruling also clearly connotes that tampering with American freedoms are off limits even to the most powerful in our system of government. We look forward to the matter being heard on further appeal in the Supreme Court,â said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
