Cummings Issues Statement on President’s Executive Order Targeting Muslims

 

Washington, D.C. (Jan. 28, 2017)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued the following statement on President Donald Trump’s executive order targeting Muslims:  

 

“I can think of few things more un-American than discriminating against people seeking refuge on our shores because of their religion.  This action betrays who we are as a country and makes us less safe. 

“America has always been at its best when we understand that diversity is our promise—not our problem.  Americans of all faiths—Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Mormon—oppose this blatant religious discrimination, and I urge President Trump to rescind his order immediately.”
