Larson Statement on Revised Executive Order of Muslim and Refugee Ban

March 6, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after President Trump signed a revised travel ban:

 

“Protecting our nation must always remain our top priority. However, the President’s executive order on the suspension of world-wide refugee processing and admissions of travelers from certain Muslim-majority countries is misguided. The order announced today again falls short of American values and only undermines our alliances in the fight against terrorism while emboldening radical terrorist groups like ISIL and Al Qaeda.”
