Thompson Condemns Repackaged Muslim Ban
Washington – Today, Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) released the following statement about the President’s executive order banning Muslims and refugees from entering the United States:
“This newest ban is just as dangerous and reckless as the original. Barring refugees and turning our back on the most vulnerable among us makes it significantly harder to form the sort of coalitions necessary to defeat ISIL. In fact, this order will likely be a prime recruitment tool for terrorists. The President says he wants to keep Americans safe, but his actions put us all in considerable jeopardy.”
Thompson previously spoke against the President’s first iteration of the travel ban, and signed an amicus brief in Darweesh, et. Al. v. Trump challenging its legality.
