Rabbi Jack Moline, president of Interfaith Alliance, issued the following statement:
“Today’s Supreme Court decision upholding President Trump’s so-called ‘travel ban’ is an abandonment of the values on which this nation was founded. Two branches of our government have now gone on record as being willing to single out certain people based on their faith. This administration has done more to undermine our standing in the world than any other in American history. Having the highest court in the land back President Trump while Congress sits silently and watches is a sad, but not unexpected result. I suspect this is not the final word on this matter, and Interfaith Alliance will do all we can to move Congress toward action that undoes this un-American outcome.”
Interfaith Alliance celebrates religious freedom by championing individual rights, promoting policies that protect both religion and democracy, and uniting diverse voices to challenge extremism. Founded in 1994, Interfaith Alliance brings together members from 75 faith traditions as well as those without a faith tradition to protect faith and freedom.
