Supreme Court rules for Muslim ban

The US Supreme Court, a confederacy of reactionary dunces if there ever was one, has ruled to allow most of Trump’s Muslim ban, including suspension of the US refugee program. Later this year, they will adjudicate the entirety of the ban. This is going to be a much tougher battle than we thought.

The Supreme Court tries to present itself as some kind of ex cathedra body drawing on the holy writ of the constitution & immune to political pressure. They can stuff that myth. They are as subject to massive political pressure as any other body of the US government.

If we are going to push this onslaught back–& we must because it endangers refugees, Muslims, & the Bill of Rights–then we must organize, agitate, educate, mobilize.
