Tuesday on CNN’s “At This Hour,” Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) reacted to the Supreme Court upholding President Donald Trump’s travel ban on several majority Muslim nations.
Ellison compared the decision to Dred Scott v. Sandford, that ruled slaves had no standing to sue in federal court. The Fourteenth Amendment overturned Dred Scott by granting citizenship, regardless of color, to all people born in the United States.
Ellison said, “All I can say is the people who believe in dignity of all people, who believe in freedom of faith, freedom of religion in America, we’re not going to stop fighting. In fact this will enliven us, inspire us to push even further and harder to establish the dignity of all people in this country. We’re not daunted here. We’re going to keep on pressing. It just proves one thing, if you steal and rip off a Supreme Court justice, then you can try to jam any kind of nasty racist ugly policy you can down the throats of the American people.”
