A federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit challenging President Trump’s Muslim travel ban can proceed. The lawsuit argues that Trump’s order is based on anti-Muslim bias. Judith Tucker of the Middle East Studies Association, one of the groups represented in the lawsuit, said in a statement, “President Trump’s attempts to impose a Muslim ban violate the U.S. Constitution [which] specifically prohibits actions disfavoring or condemning any religion and offers fundamental protection for all of us.” Last year, the Supreme Court reinstated a version of Trump’s Muslim ban after lower court judges repeatedly blocked it from going into effect.
