The Supreme Court’s Decision on President’s “Travel Ban” Executive Order

Refugees International is disappointed by the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a broad Presidential ban that was imposed in September 2017 on entry of individuals from eight countries, most of which have Muslim majorities. We believe the ban was motivated by religious bias, as reflected in repeated statements by the President prior to and subsequent to the presidential election, and that the government has failed to demonstrate that the measure was reasonably grounded in national security concerns.

We hope the administration will reconsider these ill-advised measures.

As an organization committed to the rights and well-being of refugees, we are deeply concerned by any measures that inject bias in the immigration process. Notwithstanding the Court ruling, we hope the administration will reconsider these ill-advised measures.
