Discrimination Disagreement Based on Religion

Ever since Donald Trump has become president, the country has been in an uproar fearful that he will get rid of many minority groups that are present in the United States. Trump signed an executive order on Friday that suspended immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries that have ties to past terrorist attacks, including the suspension of the United States’ acceptance of Syrian refugees. Because of this, many people all over the country protested outside of airports and city streets. Former President, Barack Obama’s spokesman, Kevin Lewis, spoke to ABC News and stated that Obama “is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country,” but that he “fundamentally disagrees” with discrimination based on someone’s faith or religion. Obama and the nation both are afraid that because of Trump’s reign, the nation will have a sectarian orientation. Last class, we discussed the different types of typologies of religious groups and how they treat others. The sectarian group is an organization of people who discriminate against other religions, class, or sometimes political movements. The people of the United States are afraid that this mindset will be okay and certain people’s lives will be negatively effected.
