Is Kamala Harris a Muslim


 

Kamala Harris is an American politician who is the vice president-elect of the United States and the junior United States senator from California. Prior to her election to the Senate, she served as the attorney general of California. 

 

She will be the United States' first female vice president, the highest-ranking female elected official in U.S. history, and the first African American and first Asian American vice president.

 

Harris was born in Oakland, California, on October 20, 1964. Her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, a biologist whose work on the progesterone receptor gene stimulated advances in breast cancer research had arrived in the U.S. from Tamil Nadu in India in 1958 as a 19-year-old graduate student in nutrition and endocrinology at the University of California, Berkeley; Gopalan received her Ph.D. in 1964.

 

Is Kamala Harris a Muslim?

 

Kamala Harris is not a Muslim.

 

She was quoted at a drive-in church service in Southfield, Michigan, which is right outside of Detroit. “for me, the church has always been a source of strength and a place for reflection. And in my private conversations with God, I usually ask for strength and protection and guidance to do the right things”

 

Harris' father, Donald J. Harris, is a Stanford University professor emeritus of economics, who arrived in the U.S. from British Jamaica in 1961 for graduate study at UC Berkeley, receiving a PhD in economics in 1966. Along with her younger sister, Maya, Harris lived in Berkeley, California briefly on Milvia Street in central Berkeley, then a duplex on Bancroft Way in West Berkeley, an area often called "the flatlands" with a significant black population.

 

Kamala Harris on Donald Trump Muslim Ban

On January 28, after Trump signed Executive Order 13769, barring citizens from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. for ninety days, she condemned the order and was one of many to describe it as a "Muslim ban". She called White House chief of staff John F. Kelly at home to gather information and push back against the executive order.
