Kaine Statement On Supreme Court Decision On President Trump's Travel Ban

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding the President’s travel ban:

“I’m disappointed that the Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s discriminatory travel ban. President Trump’s intentions with this ban are clear: to stoke fear, perpetuate stereotypes, and make our immigration policy more about politics than national security. Discriminating against individuals based on their religion or country of origin without evidence that the person poses a national security threat doesn’t make us any safer, and it undermines our core values. Congress should pass legislation to revoke this ban.”
