Trump Walled In

India Today - - UPFRONT -

On the ground, the most note­wor­thy thing about Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s or­der to pre­vent Mus­lims from en­ter­ing the US was the great big beau­ti­ful wet blan­ket of re­sis­tance that was thrown over it by le­gions of or­di­nary Amer­i­cans repulsed by Trump’s big­otry. They stood out­side air­ports chant­ing ‘Let them in’, hold­ing ban­ners that read ‘You be­long’ and ‘Free lawyer’. That’s right, lawyers—the sharki­est of the sharks in the pool—worked pro bono over the weekend to sue the gov­ern­ment on be­half of peo­ple af­fected by the ban. Amer­i­cans are pissed, and they’re show­ing it.
