  • Persecution of early Mormons underscores error in U.S. ban of Muslims, LDS legal scholars argue in court brief. Salt Lake Tribune. The U.S. government once attacked Mormons of their faith, blocked LDS immigrants from entering the country or jailed them at the border. It even tried to coerce some of them into converting to Protestantism. It should not make the same mistake with Muslims, Mormon legal scholars and historians argue in a friend-of-the-court brief filed Thursday against President Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from six mostly Muslim nations.
