STATEMENT: Rep. Ro Khanna on Trump’s Repackaged Muslim & Refugee Ban

Monday, March 6, 2017 – SILICON VALLEY, CA– Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17) released the following statement after President Trump’s executive order seeking to reinstate his Muslim and Refugee ban:

“The Trump Administration’s repackaging is merely a second attempt to revise his unconstitutional policy. This is the same ban, driven by the same hazardous discrimination that weakens our ability to fight terror. Revised language won't change what this executive order is: an act that prohibits people from entering the U.S. based on their religion or refugee status. The public and courts rejected the Trump administration's first attempt at this, and it must do so again.”
