Local Muslim community consider travel ban unjust


Many in the local Muslim community say that today’s supreme court ruling casts the U.S in a negative light on the world stage.

Muslim leader Seyed Ali Ghazvini said this will cause the separation of many families.

“Because of this travel ban, many families cannot join together at a crucial time such as memorial services or burials,” said Ghazvini.

The ban prohibits travelers from Libya, Iran, Yemen and Syria and most citizens of two non- Muslim countries.. North Korea and Venezuela from entering the U.S.

Political analyst Don Larson said the ruling will impact citizens from impacted countries who now live in the United States.

“They probably cant travel back and forth between these countries if they are here they’ll need to stay here it will be difficult for them to get back into the country,” said Larson.
