In six days, the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to Trump's Muslim ban. Anahita is one of the millions of people whose lives have been upended since the ban went into effect.

Here is her story:

“I’m an asylee from Iran. My father passed away right around the time the travel ban was issued. I hadn’t seen my father for seven years and I didn’t get to say goodbye. My refugee travel documents would be expired in two months, so no country accepted to issue a visa for me. A refugee travel document is valid for a year but most countries require a passport to be valid for at least six months after the date of the intended travel. So every six months, I need to renew the damn document and wait four months for it to come. There was the ban, so the USCIS did not issue me a travel document to see my grieving family until weeks later. It took a couple of days for refugees to be exempted from the ban, my mom begged me not to leave the U.S. I guess after losing a husband, she could not bear losing a daughter. A year has passed but I’m still crushed by guilt. Before losing his speech, my father told me he would sit with me on the terrace and talk politics ‘when I returned home.’ My dad is dead and I do not know where is home anymore.”

Incredibly excited to have been thought of and ever happier that I was able to attend.

Protestesting against the antithesis of your moral views is an incredible right. In my opinion...a great responsibility. Another, is the protection of those exercising that right. Those who impede or wholly take away that right must be held accountable.

We stand with sanctuary cities that don't want to do the bidding for Trump's deportation machine.

In seven days, the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to Trump's Muslim ban. Seyed is one of the millions of people whose lives have been upended since the ban went into effect.

Here is his story:
.
“The day after, when President Trump's travel ban came into effect, they denied her the visa. It was probably the most heart wrenching feeling we have both ever encountered. She returned to Iran without a Visa, as both of us and both our families in utter shock.
.
I had dreams of starting my business career in the U.S., doing my MBA at Stanford, and continuing on to Venture Capital and later starting my own business. I hoped that Arefeh and I would live the American dream. Now, I am already in talks to move entirely overseas. I am already starting to make the arrangements. I cannot afford to live a life where the president of my country makes decisions that greatly harm me and Arefeh's lives; and discriminate against us solely on the basis of our nationalities.
After the interview, Arefeh and I talked a lot over the phone. She asked me while in tears, "they think I'm a threat?"
.
On the day I became a naturalized citizen, I was proud to have become American. I held up the American flag and waved with pride. I set up great goals and decided that I would be a valuable asset for my nation. Now that our nation seems to discriminate Arefeh and I based on our nation of origin, I no longer feel that I belong in the US. I don't feel welcome, and I believe I can no longer call this land my home.”

In eight days, the Supreme Court will hear a challenge to Trump's Muslim ban. Yusra is one of the millions of people whose lives have been upended since the ban went into effect.

Here is her story:
.
"I am a U.S. citizen that was born in the United States. I gave birth to my baby girl without her father being around and it's was one of the hardest things I went through. I feel I am like a second-degree citizen only because I have origins from Yemen. My family is torn apart with this ban and it seems I am left with the decision to go back to Yemen despite all of the war and conflict that is going on there. I gave up on equality and justice and democracy.

My father passed away six months ago and my mother is left behind on her own. It breaks my heart that I can't get her to be by my side as a U.S. citizen. I feel helpless and sad that it takes me to dark places. I feel all my dreams of reunion and better future are scattered with this ban."
