Newton, MA – Congressman Joe Kennedy III released the following statement in response to President Trump’s executive orders on immigration and refugees.

“A great nation does not wall itself in. A confident nation does not close its door to the people that need her protection most. A tolerant nation does not target children who have only known her streets or retaliate against communities that protect their neighbors. And a nation built on the sweat and sacrifice of generations of immigrant families does not take that patriotism for granted.

“President Trump’s executive orders today are the actions of a scared government, not a strong one. I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to come together and undo his damage.”
