REP. LIEU STATEMENT ON 4TH CIRCUIT UPHOLDING BLOCK OF TRUMP'S MUSLIM BAN

 REP. LIEU STATEMENT ON 4TH CIRCUIT UPHOLDING BLOCK OF TRUMP'S MUSLIM BAN
Washington – Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D | Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after the US 4TH Circuit Court of Appeals decided not to reinstate President Trump’s revised travel ban.

“As an immigrant, I applaud the decision by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the block of President Trump’s Muslim ban.  The 4th Circuit is spot on when it writes that Trump’s ban ‘drips with intolerance, animus and discrimination.’  As a Veteran, I also stress the fact that Trump’s bigoted ban – couched within a misguided argument about our national security – does nothing to make America safer.  In fact, Trump’s Muslim ban hands our real enemies like ISIL and al-Qaeda a powerful recruiting tool and undermines our relationships with partners abroad.  There is nothing more un-American than undermining our fundamental value of accepting those who are fleeing tyranny, those who want to start a better life in the United States.  Thanks to the 4th Circuit, some of America’s fundamental values are safe from Trump’s desire to gut them.”
