Hornet Responds To Trump’s Immigration Ban In New Message To Users


Gay dating app Hornet has spoken out against President Trump’s recent decision to alter America’s immigration policies.

On Sunday, Hornet sent a short message to users saying that it “stands in solidarity” with immigrants and Muslims worldwide, following what has been dubbed the “Muslim ban” in America.

The note also contained a link to the American Civil Liberties Union’s “Know Your Rights” page, which gives a breakdown of people’s rights based on a number of situations.

The full message reads: “Hornet stands in solidarity with immigrants and Muslims around the world.

“We have strived to create a global community that celebrates diversity and transcends walls or borders.

“We are committed to and will fight for the human rights of all.

“Know your rights. https://www.aclu.org/know-your-rights #NoBanNoWall.”

Hornet’s note follows the news that the new US President, Donald Trump, has made a number of changes to the country’s immigration policies, including the suspension of the US Refugee Admissions Programme for 120 days and a temporary ban on immigrants from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen for 90 days.

The US President has also capped refugee numbers to 50,000 – down from 110,000.
