Of course this isn’t the politically correct thing to admit or discuss as he takes office but I believe U.S. Congressman Keith Ellison, (D-MN) is right on this one.
Keith Ellison: President Trump ‘Can’t Deny’ This is a Muslim Ban!
Perhaps the racist, Muslim, Ellison in right for the first time?
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,”discussing President Donald Trump executive order halting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries into the United States, Democratic National Committee chair hopeful Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said the action was “a Muslim ban” and the Trump administration “can’t deny it is a Muslim ban.”
Ellison said, “You know what, we never have had a religious based ban before.
This is a Muslim ban and they can’t deny it is a Muslim ban.
On the campaign trail he said he wanted a Muslim ban.
He said on national television there would be other religious groups receiving priority.
This is a Muslim ban.
Rudy Giuliani who helped him write it said they started with the intention of a Muslim ban and then languaged it up to avoid that label.
It is a religiously based ban which is something that — our constitution says congress shall make no law establishing a religion or bridge free exercise there of.
This is a violation of equal protection.
It’s a religiously based ban.”
Except Islam is not a religion!
