Rep. Kind Calls on President Trump to Suspend his Muslim Ban

January 30, 2017
Press Release

President Trump signed an Executive Order blocking refugees and citizens of seven Muslim countries from entering the United States. The Executive Order immediately set off confusion and led to unnecessary detentions for families and travelers across the United States. Below is Rep. Kind’s statement on the Executive Order:

“President Trump’s Executive Order blocking refugees and people from select Muslim countries from entering the United States does not reflect who we are as a nation. We cannot start discriminating based on religion. Instead of helping keep our country safe it will jeopardize our national security by giving ISIS and other terror groups another recruitment tool and making it harder for our allies in Muslim nations to work with us on counter-terrorism operations. I am calling on President Trump to immediately suspend his Executive Order until Congress has had a chance to review the order,” said Rep. Kind.
