Once again, peel back the layers of a leftist-inspired backlash against President Donald Trump — and it’s George Soros you’ll see.
The group behind a New York City protest against Trump’s travel ban is funded by none other than Soros. Which group? The New York Immigration Coaltion, Breitbart found.
The protest gathered about 200 anti-Trumpers in Union Square in New York City.
The well-orchestrated protest drew about 200 anti-Trump activists like Sharia Linda Sarsour, along with social justice advocate Letitia James, as NY1 reported. Protesters held glossy signs, reading “No ban, no walls, no raids,” demanding an open borders approach to national security issues.
Many local media reports did not question the organized nature of the action, nor its primary funders.
For example, Policy Director of the Impact Center for Public Interest Law at New York Law School Andrew Scherer, who has also worked closely with Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
Another funder of the New York Immigration Coalition is Kay Murray, a New York City lawyer who has also deep ties to the Soros organization.
Trump’s travel ban was partially reinstated for 90 days while the Supreme Court awaits a final ruling on the executive order, which shuts down refugee resettlement and travel from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
The travel ban was previously shot down by lower courts, with judges using Trump’s campaign trail statements to block the measure.The travel ban was billed by leftists and lower courts as a ban on Muslims, based on Trump’s rhetoric on the campaign trail.
But that characterization has little to do with the actual text of the order, which simply states that those from six different nations — all of which are tied to terror — cannot enter the United States for a period of 90 days, unless they meet certain exemptions tied to family reasons. Similarly, refugees are banned from coming into the United States, for a period of 120 days.
