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

“A rebranded Muslim ban is still a Muslim ban, plain and simple. It’s clear that the Trump administration’s intent with this executive order is the same as it was with the first, which is to exclude refugees and immigrants of a certain religion from entering the United States. Like the previous ban that was rejected by millions of Americans and blocked by the federal courts, this reckless and un-American executive order once again blatantly defies our nation’s highest ideals and makes our country less safe. I will fight every step of the way this renewed attempt to play the worst kind of politics at the expense of our most cherished values—and as history has shown us, so will the American people.”
