Wyden Statement on New Ban on Refugees and Immigrants from Six Majority Muslim Nations

 Washington, D.C. – Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., released the following statement on a new executive order blocking refugees and immigrants from six majority Muslim nations.

“Today's order is little more than a warmed-over rehash of the original. It remains a barely disguised religious ban that will do absolutely nothing to protect our country. If there was any doubt this was about satisfying a far-right wing fantasy, not security, the month-long delay in reissuing the ban is concrete proof,” Wyden said.
