Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40) issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling today in Trump v. Hawaii:

“By a single vote, the Supreme Court has awarded a victory to advocates of hatred, fear, and religious intolerance.  Make no mistake: this travel ban is a Muslim ban.  That’s why Donald Trump created it.  This anti-Muslim policy won’t keep America safer, and it disgraces our nation’s history as a haven for religious liberty.  Future generations will look back and ask how this wafer-thin Court majority came to endorse such a blatantly discriminatory policy.  I will keep fighting in Congress to end this despicable Muslim ban, so that we can turn our focus to policies that uphold America’s inclusive spirit and truly keep our nation safe.”
