Activists Protest SCOTUS Travel Ban Decision

Rallies were held in Nashville and across the country following the Supreme Court's decision to uphold President Trump's travel ban.

The latest, third version of the policy applies to five mostly Muslim countries as well as North Korea and Venezuela.

The state of Hawaii led the challenge, arguing the ban was biased against Muslims.

Chief Justice John Roberts said the ban was within the scope of Presidential authority to protect national security.

Here at home, a rally was held at legislative plaza hosted by the American Muslim Advisory Council.

Participants said the ban is "blatantly discriminatory" and hoped to show the Trump Administration that Americans will continue to fight the ban.
