Muslim political activist Linda Sarsour took to Twitter on Tuesday to respond to the Supreme Court’s decision upholding President Trump’s executive order pausing immigration from some Muslim-majority countries.
Sarsour, who has openly called for Muslims to wage “jihad” against Trump, tweeted, “Whether or not it’s in the President’s powers, this is still a discriminatory and xenophonic policy and we will not allow it.”
BREAKING: Supreme Court decides to uphold the third iteration of the Muslim Ban. Whether or not it's in the President's powers, this is still a discriminatory and xenophobic policy and we will not allow it. Join us tonight in Foley Square to say #NoMuslimBanEver #StandWithMuslims pic.twitter.com/gFqn8zHiRD

Sarsour, who has called for the Muslim community to be “perpetually outraged”, rallied her followers to protest the court’s decision on Tuesday night in Foley Square, a movement that has been publicly backed by the Women’s March as well.
SCOTUS just voted to uphold Trump’s #MuslimBan. We are outraged, we are fired up, and we will be in Foley Square tonight to stand with our Muslim sisters, brothers, and siblings to say. #NoMuslimBanEver pic.twitter.com/dlNJH21Oxs
