The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in favor of President Donald Trump in Trump v. Hawaii, the controversial case regarding concerning Trump‘s September order to restrict travel to the U.S. for citizens of several majority Muslim countries.
Katyal also cited Trump’s retweeting of what Katyal called “virulent anti-Muslim videos” in November of last year. The videos had titles such as “Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches!” and “Muslim Destroys a Statue of Virgin Mary!”
The president has said that the ban is not about Islam.
“This is not about religion—this is about terror and keeping our country safe,” the president said in January, after facing criticism over the first iteration of the order.
That initial order, signed in the first weeks of the Trump administration, led to days of protests around the country, with thousands gathering at airports to demonstrate.
