McCollum Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Uphold Trump Travel Ban

June 26, 2018
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-MN) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court decision to uphold the Trump travel ban:

Today’s Supreme Court decision to uphold President Trump’s executive order targeting refugees and Muslim immigrants will go down in history alongside Dred Scott v. Sandford and Korematsu v. United States as a ruling that Americans will look back on in shame. President Trump’s long record of bigoted remarks about Muslims clearly show that his travel ban is based on religious intolerance. For the Supreme Court to uphold this patently discriminatory religious ban is an appalling betrayal of American values.
