"In fact, if nobody's disagreeing with what you're doing, then you're probably not doing anything that really matters in the scheme of things," Miller said.

US Congress is scheduled to hold a vote against the travel ban Monday night. A demonstration on the steps of US Supreme Court is planned ahead of the vote, according to POLITICO.
