Tom Perez on SCOTUS Action on Trump’s Muslim Ban

Today, the Supreme Court announced it will allow part of President Trump’s Muslim ban to take effect until it hears oral arguments over the constitutionality of the executive order in the Fall. Earlier this month, the 9thCircuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s decision that found the executive order was “rooted in religious animus and intended to bar Muslims from this country.” DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:


“Donald Trump’s Muslim ban is an unconstitutional and un-American assault on our country’s foundation of religious freedom. As a nation, our diversity is our greatest strength, and we cannot allow such prejudice to shut the doors of progress. Democrats will continue to fight this hatred every step of the way.”
