March 16, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.) released the following statement in response to the federal ruling that blocks President Trump’s second travel ban executive order:

“I am pleased by yesterday’s federal ruling that blocked the Trump Administration’s second un-American attempt to ban travelers from six predominantly Muslim countries. The Administration’s discriminatory and intolerant words and actions threaten our national security and gives our adversaries a tool for recruiting extremists. We must never forget our nation’s proud tradition of welcoming people of all religions and nationalities, especially those fleeing unspeakable violence, who are willing to come here and share in the responsibility of promoting American values.”
