“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion . . .”
– 1st Amendment to the US Constitution
I felt nothing but heartbreak as I read today that the Trump administration continues to advocate registering Muslim immigrants to our country. As Goldstar father Khizr Khan said so passionately during the Democratic Convention, “Have you read the Constitution?”
Adding insult to injury, a Trump surrogate this week cited as support for the heinous Muslim registry plan the precedent of the internment of Japanese citizens during World War II – widely considered one of the most shameful chapters in US history.
Apparently they haven’t read a history book either.
