    Musicians have begun to speak out against President Donald Trump’s despicable executive order to bar citizens of seven Muslim countries from entering the United States for at least 90 days. Trump contends that the (probably illegal) order is necessary to keep “radical Islamic terrorists” out of the US, though it has already sparked widespread outrage from those who agree that it amounts to government-sponsored racial and religious persecution. Here’s what several prominent musicians are saying about what’s quite accurately being called the “Muslim Ban”:
