Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the Trump Administration issued a repackaged travel ban:

“The Trump Administration’s latest Muslim and refugee ban casts the widest dragnet yet, permanently barring millions of innocent people from entering the country on the basis of their nationality and religion.  No matter how the Republican White House tries to dress it up, this is the same immoral and dangerous ban as before, with the same discriminatory motivations and the same cruel impacts.  

“We must be strong and smart, not reckless and rash, to protect and defend the American people.  Yet, the Trump Administration continues to put discrimination above national security and push blatantly discriminatory policies that undermine our ability to keep Americans safe and to fight terror.  Democrats will always fight to protect our nation’s values and security.”
