KENNEDY STATEMENT ON SECOND MUSLIM & REFUGEE BAN

Mar 6, 2017
Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Joe Kennedy III today released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s second Muslim and refugee ban.
 
“Instead of making good on the now-empty rhetoric he offered Congress and the American people last week, President Trump today doubled down on fear, division and prejudice. His second attempt at a Muslim and refugee ban will not make our country safer – instead it will further sow global distrust and weaken the critical role the United States has long played in setting the bar for human rights. Closing American doors to our world’s most vulnerable will not mark a proud moment in this country’s history.”
