It’s no secret Hollywood isn’t exactly thrilled with President Trump’s travel ban – but what is interesting is how some are now using a new tactic to show their disapproval: pointing to the Bible.
This Is How Christians Should Be Thinking About Trump’s Travel Ban
Adrienne Bailon Houghton is one of them, as “The Real” television took to Instagram to quote from Leviticus.

The Instagram post that first appeared earlier this week also visually depicted an Iranian-American crying while waiting for his brother at the Los Angeles International Airport before finding out that his brother was rerouted back to Iran due to Trump’s travel ban.
The former Disney star said, “My heart breaks watching this video. Pray for our country. Pray for the world.”
The link included in the post has since been deleted, but the Bible verse posted on Jan. 31st is still present on Houghton’s Twitter page.
In the days since President Trump’s executive order announcement, the star has also tackled the topic with co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry about the government’s role in protecting America and the immigration ban that pertains to seven nations.
One of the most outspoken members of the show’s squad, Loni Love, led the talk and continued to reiterate that Americans need to stay calm, arguing that the nation is safe. Adding that, regardless of who the president in power is, there are people working in the federal government on behalf of all Americans.
President Trump’s travel ban has caused over 100,000 visas to be revoked, Simon Sandoval-Moshenberg of the Legal Aid Justice Center told news reporters last week.
Sandal-Moshenberg is representing two Yemeni brothers who arrived at Dull International Airport in Washington DC last weekend but were allegedly pressured into giving up their legal resident visas and forced to return to Ethiopia, Washington Post reported on Friday.
