Statement by Congressman Dan Kildee on the Supreme Court's Decision on Trump's Muslim Ban


Date: June 26, 2018

Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court's narrow 5-4 decision to uphold President Donald Trump's Muslim ban:

"This Supreme Court decision will go down in history as a great moral failure. Today's decision fails to protect religious liberty. Every American, no matter their race or religion, should be concerned about the dangerous precedent of this ruling. Discriminating based on one's religion is not consistent with our American values.

"The President's discriminatory Muslim Ban makes America less safe. Counterterrorism experts have voiced concern that such bans are a powerful recruiting tool for terrorists trying to do us harm.

"To the millions of peaceful Muslim-Americans, know that you are very much part of our shared American story. I am deeply saddened by today's decision, but I will continue fighting for religious liberty for all."
