Local activist Michael Billy and Chairman of the Subcontinent Peace Foundation Dr. Imtiaz Syed are hosting a rally in downtown Jersey City tonight to defend immigrant rights.
“A 7 nation ban that detains and sends back people because they are Muslim is UnAmerican and immoral,” reads the rally’s Facebook page. “This is detention without due process – chilling to constitutional norms, civil and religious liberty.”
Confirmed speakers for tonight’s rally include Mayor Steven Fulop, President of the American Muslim Association Sam Khan, President of the Jersey City Peace Movement Eric Nilsson, and many more.
The rally will take place at the Newark Avenue Pedestrian Plaza from 6pm to 8pm. —Jersey City Rally
