USA: Dozens gather in front of Supreme Court to decry Trump's travel ban

United States, Washington DC
December 8, 2017 at 05:03 GMT +00:00 · Published

Dozens of activists rallied on Thursday evening outside the Supreme Court in Washington DC after it approved the latest version of US President Donald Trump's travel ban.

The event was organised by a number of human rights groups and Muslim rights advocates, including speakers from Congress and grassroots activists.

"This is not just a legal battle but this is the battle that is challenging the hatred that is taking over this country," said Mana Kharrazi, the executive director of Iranian Alliance Across Borders.

On Monday, the US Supreme Court approved Donald Trump's latest travel ban, forbidding certain people from Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.

Decenas de manifestantes se reunieron frente a la Corte Suprema en Washington D. C. En protesta contra la llamada «travel ban» (prohibición de viajar a Estados Unidos) firmada por el presidente estadounidense Donald Trump. El evento fue organizado por varios grupos de derechos humanos y defensores de los derechos musulmanes.

La Corte Suprema de EE.UU. aprobó que el decreto anti-inmigración de Trump entre en vigor, mientras continúen apelaciones en tribunales menores. La medida prohibe el ingreso de ciudadanos de Chad, Irán, Libia, Somalia, Siria y Yemen.
