Supreme Court Hands Trump Victory in Muslim Ban

The Supreme Court rules in favor of Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban by a 4-5 vote in a devastating decision for civil rights. On our show today we’ll turn to Zahra Billoo of the Council on American Islamic Relations for what the decision means, what dissenting judges said, and what’s next for the fight for civil rights in the US. Then, we’ll go to the encampment in Portland, Oregon outside a building run by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Our correspondent Arun Gupta has been present since the start of what is being called #OccupyICEPDX and will give us a report from the ground, how federal agents are now involved, and where similar protests are spreading. Finally, Brave New Films has released a new video highlighting the trauma being unleashed against families at the US-Mexico border. We’ll play you the entire short film.
