Baltimore – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously refused to lift the nationwide halt on President Trump’s executive order banning refugees and citizens from seven Muslim countries:

“The 9th Circuit’s unanimous ruling is a victory for our Constitution and our fight against terrorism.  National security experts have urgently warned us that the President’s ban is not just immoral and unconstitutional, but downright dangerous. 

“This Administration’s recklessness has already done significant harm to families, and undermined our fight against terror.  For the sake of our values and the security of America, Democrats will continue to press for President Trump’s dangerous and unconstitutional ban to be withdrawn.”
