I know many people just glanced over the headline of the #SCOTUS ruling that will tear millions of immigrant families apart. You had the usual Trumpisms, the hostage taking gunman in Germany who wasn’t Muslim so it wasn’t a big deal (yes I’m being sarcastic), the Democrat sit-in on the House floor which I actually wish was for more comprehensive gun reform, the debate over Brexit in the UK, and so much more. But the amount of damage that was done today by the #SCOTUS immigration ruling truly is heartbreaking. I personally know many people in our community that were enjoying Ramadan and now have had their world rocked. Some prominent teachers, other simple hard working individuals unknown to most. Make no mistake about it, the reckless xenophobic language of politicians and media contributes to this. America is supposed to be a place of dreams, but today it’s a nightmare for so many families. Let’s renew our commitment to actual immigration reform, an end to nighttime raids that tear up families, and so many more issues that don’t just affect the Muslim community, but our country as a whole. I pray for the families who now feel more unsafe than ever before because of this ruling. May God give them the peace and security that every family deserves.
