Kuster Statement on President Trump’s Revised Travel Ban
(Washington, DC) – Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on President Trump’s revised travel ban:
“President Trump’s revised travel ban does nothing to improve the safety of the American people and only undermines the international standing of the United States. Our nation should serve as a beacon of hope around the world and this misguided Executive Action will alienate the very people who we need as our partners in the battle against global terrorism. We can maintain our security through thorough and stringent vetting without forfeiting our values. This new travel ban is more of the same politically motivated posturing we’ve come to expect from the Trump Administration. I stand ready to fight in Congress for the principles of inclusivity and acceptance that we hold dear as Americans.”
Congresswoman Kuster previously backed legislation to defund President Trump’s travel ban before it was challenged in the Courts.
