Tucson, AZ - A couple dozen Tucsonans gathered outside the federal government building to protest the new Muslim ban proposed by Trump. The crowd celebrated the victory over the Trump administration’s Islamophobic executive order, resulting from popular pressure and two federal judge rulings in Hawaii and Maryland.

“As we celebrate this short-term victory, we must continue to gather forces and build mass movements to stop Trump and the agenda of this administration,” said organizer Amanda Molina, “We know he will keep pressing for this issue and others that harm Arab and Muslim peoples. We must organize movements strong enough to stop him!”
