Life in NJ Muslim community under Trump

Tom Brocket’s account in The Independent

Life in NJ Muslim community under Trump

An article by UCL Geography PhD researcher Tom Brocket, about the reactions to President Donald Trump's 'Muslim Ban' in an Arab-American community in New Jersey, has appeared in The Conversation and been subsequently published by The Independent.

The personal reactions of various community members are described in the days following the imposition of the Executive Order. These range from young children imitating Trump's political performances to older adults finding comfort in small gestures of kindness and support from the wider New Jersey population.

The article also briefly places the ban in a longer historical context of governmental activities targeting Arab- and Muslim-Americans, and the longstanding difficulties of 'Flying while Arab' in the United States.
