Mar 6, 2017 Issues: Foreign Affairs

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today issued the following statement in response to the revised Executive Order on refugees:

“President Trump's latest Executive Order continues to shut the door to refugees fleeing persecution, and it continues to enforce a de facto discrimination based on religion. This irresponsible Executive Order will harm national security by deterring Muslim allies from working with the United States and by providing a recruiting tool for terrorists. The United States should continue to serve as a beacon for those in desperate situations, and we can and must both fight terrorism and help those who seek to escape it.”
