WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego) released the following statement on President Trump’s Executive Order targeting Muslims and refugees.

“America has always been a beacon of hope and freedom around the world. This executive order slams the door on those seeking refuge from violence and oppression and runs contrary to the values that have defined America for generations. We already have one of the most stringent and thorough screening processes for vetting refugees, taking years to complete.

"The Muslim ban is a policy based on fear not strength. This executive order will simply reduce the stature and influence America will have globally."
