Adams Statement on Supreme Court Decision Upholding President Trump’s Muslim Ban

Jun 26, 2018
Press Release

Washington D.C.-Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of Trump’s Muslim ban.

 

“I am deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Trump’s travel ban,” said Congresswoman Adams. "This Administration has routinely implemented immigration policies that are steeped in bigotry and hatred.  President Trump has failed to implement a comprehensive immigration reform, he has failed to make our borders safer, and he has failed to uphold the sacred values that our nation was founded upon. The only thing this President has done is push forward a hateful agenda that attacks religious and racial minorities.  We are better than this. Today’s Supreme Court decision is yet another sad reflection of the dangerous direction that our country is heading in.

 

"I want those that I serve to know that I will continue to fight for progress by challenging all forms of discrimination.   The United States of America has always been a safe haven for those seeking refuge from persecution, violence, and poverty and we must not abandon that core principle.”
