Veasey Statement on Second Iteration of President Trump’s Travel Ban

Mar 6, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Marc Veasey, TX-33, issued the following statement after President Trump issued a revised version of his travel ban:

“Call it what you will, but President Trump’s newest travel ban is simply a guise to continue discriminating against vulnerable refugees and Muslim communities abroad. Despite the fact that the Trump Administration has tried to justify its actions by citing terrorism-related concerns, its own Department of Homeland Security has preliminarily found contradictory facts.”

“Continuing to baselessly single out the Muslim community only provides ISIS and our enemies with dangerous recruitment material.  Our national security policies must be guided by facts, not fear.”
