Senator Mazie K. Hirono rallied with Karen Korematsu, civil rights groups, and activists at the Supreme Court after the Court heard oral arguments in Trump v. Hawaii – a case that will determine the constitutionality of President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban.
“If the Supreme Court allows this action by this president to stand, my fear is we don’t know what he will do next to hurt other immigrant or minority communities,” Senator Hirono said. “This is no time to give up and I will continue to fight against this administration’s divisive and discriminatory actions.”
Earlier this year, Senator Hirono joined 31 Senators in signing an amicus brief in support of the State of Hawaii’s case against the Muslim ban.
Senator Hirono and Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined together to successfully petition the Supreme Court to release same-day audio of oral arguments in the Trump v. Hawaii case.
