El viernes, Donald Trump firmó un veto para cerrar las fronteras de Estados Unidos a inmigrantes y refugiados de siete países predominantemente musulmanes. Después de la Marcha de la Mujer de la semana anterior, la gente volvió a las calles -y aeropuertos- a manfiestarse en contra.
Varios artistas recurrieron a las redes sociales para demostrar su malestar (Rihanna, John Legend, Charli XCX). Otros, como Ed Droste de Grizzly Bear, Bat For Lashes y A-Trak señalaron la ascendencia musulmán en sus familias. Win Butler de Arcade Fire comentó, irónicamente, que el padre biológico de Steve Jobs era sirio.
Otros, como Grimes y Sia, promovieron campañas de donaciones a asociones que luchan por la integración de musulmanes y sus derechos civiles. La canadiense donará al Council on American-Islam Relations (CAIR) una suma de hasta $10.000 dólares, mientras que Sia hará lo respectivo con la American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) en una suma de hasta $100.000. Entre los que ya donaron se encuentran Four Tet y Caroline Polachek de Chairlift.
hey, i’ll match all donations to CAIR up to $10,000. tweet a screencap of your receipt to me <3 anything helps <3 https://t.co/tNaqrxOm7a

Disgusted! The news is devastating! America is being ruined right before our eyes! What an immoral pig you have to be to implement such BS!!

Steve Jobs father was Syrian and he was adopted in to an American family. This is absolute madness and completely against American interest

I actually literally CANNOT think think of a time where I’ve been so overwhelmed with sadness, anger and disgust at a person, his team and their supporters. What happened today to people who WORKED and PROTECTED US forces in Iraq and elsewhere and were already vetted to the highest level, literally makes me sick. It takes a truly cold and evil heart to close the door on the most needy, not to mention people who HELPED US. Shame on this man, and anyone who supports/supported him. Truly truly truly a dark chapter in our history. #istandwithrefugees #istandwithplannedparenthood #notmypresident #shame
Great. Trump banning immigrants. Guess you better send Melania back too.

This is a beautiful story. When we reject Iraqi refugees, we reject Brahim. Shame on America. Shame on Donald Trump. https://t.co/1NzFtUPvm8

the only sure way i can think of minimizing the amount of radical extremists in america would be to deport the one we just elected president
