Celebrities Speak Out Against Trump’s Muslim Ban

Trump on Friday signed orders not only to suspend admission of all refugees into the United States for 120 days but also to implement “new vetting measures” to screen out “radical Islamic terrorists.” Refugee entry from Syria would be suspended indefinitely, and all travel from Syria, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen are suspended for 90 days. Trump also said he would give priority to Christian refugees over those of other religions.

Vice President Mike Pence called Trump’s ban unconstitutional, in 2015.

Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani told Fox News Trump wanted a “Muslim ban” and requested he assemble a commission to show him “the right way to do it legally.”

Protesters nationwide and around the world formed in airports to speak out against the ban. Celebrities used their platform to express their disgust as well at Sunday night’s SAG Awards.
