Rising Up With Sonali

What Does the Supreme Court Order on Trump’s Muslim Ban Mean?

The US Supreme Court issued an order allowing Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban v 3.0 to take effect while lower courts rule on its constitutionality. On today’s show we’ll speak with Zahra Billoo of the Council on American Islamic Relations about the disappointing order and what it means. Then, Trump announces a dramatic reduction in federal protections of two national monuments in Utah, caving to corporate fossil fuel interests. Cassady Craighill of Greenpeace will explain how unprecedented and legally fraught Trump’s decision is. Finally, Emmanuel Felton joins us to discuss his new investigative piece in the Nation Magazine about the re-segregation of American schools with a focus on one school district in Alabama.
