Booker Statement on Supreme Court Decision Upholding Trump Muslim Ban

June 26, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) issued the following statement:

“I’m deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court has upheld the latest iteration of President Trump’s Muslim ban. It’s impossible to ignore that this policy is rooted in the President’s repeated statements during his campaign that he wanted to ban Muslims from entering our country. And it’s clear that this policy’s intent has always been to exclude refugees and immigrants of a certain religion from coming to the United States.

“This reckless and un-American policy defies our nation’s highest ideals and actually makes our country less safe – and no court ruling changes that truth. I will continue to fight Trump’s Muslim ban and work to advance our shared American values.”
