Moments ago, a federal appellate court struck down Donald Trump's Muslim ban.
Because of Donald Trump, thousands of people were detained in airports -- some for days! -- stranded overseas, or deported. Families were ripped apart. Sick infants and the elderly were denied medical care. Legal permanent residents canceled trips to attend weddings and funerals abroad for fear they would be unable to return home. And our country became less safe as our enemies cheered us on.
But Americans refused to remain silent. We marched on the White House and at airports, welcomed refugees to our shores, and denounced Trump's discriminatory order. We made it clear that this was not who we are.
Tonight's ruling is the first step in eliminating this hateful Muslim ban for good. But we must keep the pressure on -- and we have to be ready to push back just as hard against whatever Donald Trump and Steve Bannon come up with next.
If you're ready for the next fight, chip in $10 or more tonight to stand with Democrats. We're in this together.
