Congressman Krishnamoorthi Condemns Supreme Court Ruling Upholding Administration's Travel Ban

June 27, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi released the following statement in response to the recent Supreme Court ruling upholding the Trump administration’s travel ban:

“I’m very disturbed by the Supreme Court’s ruling sustaining the Administration’s travel ban and legitimizing the use of excessive executive power by opening the door to religiously-motivated discrimination against entire countries based on scant evidence or none. American immigration and foreign policy should advance American values, prosperity, and security, but the travel ban and the ruling upholding it harm these efforts.”
