A number of prominent Indian Americans across the country has welcomed an appeals court’s decision unanimously rejecting the Trump administration’s attempt to reinstate a travel ban against nationals of seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi, D-IL, tweeted on Thursday evening that he will “continue to speak out against this undemocratic ban until it’s over for good.”
Also weighing in were Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, comedian Aasif Mandvi, technology guru Vivek Wadhva and the organization South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT). Following are some of their tweets on the appeals court order.
