The Democratic Party vowed to “continue to fight” President Trump’s “Muslim Ban” this week, just a day after the Supreme Court decided that his revised immigration policies were not -in fact- a “Muslim Ban.”
The liberal legislators took their crusade against the White House to social media Tuesday, slamming the “unconscionable and antithetical” travel ban hours after the nation’s high court said the proposal was within the President’s constitutional authority.
“Trump’s Muslim ban is not only unconscionable and antithetical to everything this country stands for but makes us less safe and threatens our place as a beacon of freedom for the world. Democrats will continue to fight against these discriminatory policies at every step,” writes the party’s official Twitter account.

The Supreme Court’s historic ruling shocked liberal lawmakers this week; firmly stating the travel restrictions were “not discriminatory” and within the President’s powers to protect the citizens of the United States.
BREAKING: Supreme Court UPHOLDS TRUMP’S ‘TRAVEL BAN’
The Supreme Court of the United States ruled Tuesday that President Trump’s highly-contested ‘travel ban’ is within his constitutional rights to protect the citizens of the United States; adding the immigration restrictions did not amount to “discrimination.”
The 5-4 decision effectively ends multiple lower court decisions that blocked the revised guidelines just hours after the ban was to take effect.
Chief Justice Roberts said the restrictions fall within presidential power to regulate “immigration” and rejected critics claims of anti-Muslim bias.
The ‘travel ban’ impacts travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, North Korea, and Venezuela.
Challengers to the President’s policy claim the restrictions were motivated by religious bias, while supporters claim the move was necessary to help protect the US from visitors without a proper vetting process.
SCHUMER MELTDOWN: Chuck Trashes ‘BACKWARD AND UN-AMERICAN’ Travel Ban
Sen. Chuck Schumer didn’t hold back while commenting on the Supreme Court’s ‘travel ban’ ruling Tuesday, slamming the “backwards” and “un-American” immigration guidelines within minutes of the decision.
The Senate Minority Leader issued a stark statement this week; blasting the decision while saying the revised policy “doesn’t make us safer” and the Court’s ruling “doesn’t make it right.”
“The president’s travel ban doesn’t make us safer, and the Supreme Court’s ruling doesn’t make it right,” Schumer said in a statement. “This is a backward and un-American policy that fails to improve our national security.”
The President hailed the Court’s decision Tuesday afternoon, calling the new guidelines a “tremendous victory for the American people and the Constitution.”
“This ruling is also a moment of profound vindication following months of hysterical commentary from the media and Democratic politicians who refuse to do what it takes to secure our border and our country,” he added.
