McCollum Statement on President Trump’s Repackaged Immigration Order

March 6, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum released the following statement on President Donald Trump’s immigration order:

“President Donald Trump’s new executive order on immigration and refugees is nothing but a repackaged version of a bigoted policy that numerous federal courts already struck down.

“No matter what political spin President Trump and his administration put on this action, the facts are clear: it turns our backs on vulnerable refugee families, discriminates against Muslims, betrays our values as Americans, and embarrasses our country around the world.

“I will continue to stand alongside millions of Americans from all walks of life against President Trump’s discriminatory policies. It is long past time for House Republicans to come off the sidelines, speak up for our values, and stand up to President Trump.”
