Potential Relevance: In the world we live in today, religious identities are becoming increasingly important. For many years now, Islamophobia has spread in the United States and one can only assume that the current administration will worsen the situation. Being Muslim has become an identity that people are now ashamed to carry for fear of persecution. The Trump administration has recently made it impossible for people of certain Muslim countries to obtain visas for the United States.
