Congress Member Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12), issued the following statement after President Trump released “the newest iteration of his Muslim and refugee ban:”

“The new executive order is anything but (new). This repackaging of the original executive order is still clearly an unconstitutional and hateful action meant to ban Muslim and refugees from coming to our shores. Such hateful acts not only undermine our values and democracy, but also threaten American security at home and abroad.

“I will continue to fight this ban. Our country is one of immigrants, and that diversity makes our nation strong. We cannot be silent when American values are under assault.”
