Mar 6, 2017

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand today issued the following statement on President Donald J. Trump’s updated Executive Order barring immigration from six majority Muslim countries:

“President Trump’s updated Executive Order is still coldhearted, discriminatory and detrimental to our security. This order is antithetical to our American values and what the Statue of Liberty stands for. I will continue to stand with New Yorkers in opposing President Trump’s discriminatory actions that hurt families in our community and undermine our national security.”
