Rep. Lee: Trump Administration’s Refugee Ban Do-Over is Still Dangerous & Un-American

Washington, DC - Congresswoman Lee released the following statement regarding President Trump’s executive order barring refugees and immigrants from six predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States:

“After the American people and the courts resoundingly rejected the Trump Administration’s xenophobic executive order, President Trump has once again closed the doors to refugees fleeing violence and persecution.

“As a proud nation of immigrants, founded as a haven from religious persecution, this heartless executive order violates our basic values. In addition, this islamophobic order alienates our allies around the world and makes us less safe.

“The hate on display in the Trump Administration is not representative of our nation as a whole. Once again, we must reject this dangerous and unconstitutional action that undermines our national security.”
