FLEMINGTON, NJ - During his presidential campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump said he supported a ban on Muslims entering the country, and was in favor of requiring registration of Muslim-Americans.

As president, Trump has now made good on part of that campaign promise, and issued an Executive Order banning entry for 90 days from seven majority-Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.

He has also suspended the entire US refugee admissions system for 120 days, and suspended the Syrian refugee program indefinitely.

The orders have triggered national protests, and Flemington is now poised to have one of its own.

An event called the Hunterdon Emergency Rally to Oppose President Trump’s #MuslimBan will be held Thursday on the steps of the old Historic Courthouse on Main Street here. It will be take place from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

The protest has been organized by Progressive Hunterdon Democrats, whose slogan is, “A smarter way to govern.”

Speakers will include Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker; Alexa Offenhauer of the Hunterdon Anti-Racism Coalition; Alexi Velez of the state chapter of the ACLU; Emam Yaser Elmenshawy of the Islamic Center of Hunterdon County; county teacher’s union vice president Marie Corfield; and Kevin Leach, who is the Hunterdon Central High School senior class president.

The event is open to all.
