My great-grandfather Hy Rubin was a Romanian Jew who immigrated here during the Russian Revolution of 1917, fleeing religious persecution. He came here when he was 12 years old. If he and his parents had not been allowed entry into the United States due to the fact that they were Jewish, who knows what may have become of him? Donald Trump’s ban on people coming in from Muslim countries is unethical, racist, and immoral. By putting what he believes is “in the country’s best interest” in order, he is putting thousands of lives at risk in Syria, and separating families who may be overseas, but here on visa. And the fact that he introduced this ban on the day of Holocaust Remembrance Day - a day on which we must remember that the US denied entry to many people, causing them to perish in Auschwitz and other concentration camps - proves to be a grim reminder that we are still not done fighting for freedom from religious persecution. To my Muslim and immigrant friends, I have said it before and I will say it a million and one times: Your voices are being heard. I see you. I will fight for you.
