In three days, the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to Trump's Muslim ban. Haya is one of the millions of people whose lives have been upended since the ban went into effect.
Here is her story:
“I was born in the United States to Syrian parents, who sacrificed everything they had to ensure that I could live the life that they were not allowed to live. A life free from persecution and oppression. Now at 17, I am studying in the United States with privilege and in harmony, while Syria is facing a disastrous war that has torn my family to pieces. My Mom, Dad, and 14 year old sister are banned from entering the United States because of their nationality and religion. They are constantly discriminated against at airports, and are subjected to extremely unnecessary interrogational procedures when they apply for visas and other similar travel documents. It’s absolutely insane that a country that prides itself on its commitment to freedom and justice, can close its doors on refugees and immigrants seeking help. The country that I was born in not only betrayed me, but it betrayed my family as well. However, I will continue to voice my family and my cries for justice, and will not stop until all immigrants and refugees receive the treatment they deserve as human beings.”

When the Minneapolis Police Department decides to implement and enforce best practices for body cameras, only then will its body camera policy “have teeth.” But a policy is merely a tool — and the MPD has to use it if it’s ever going to work. Read more here and see link in bio:
