Cortez Masto: Travel Ban Decision Flies in Face of Religious Freedom

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) released the following statement after the Supreme Court upheld President Trump’s anti-Muslim travel ban:

“This decision flies in the face of our nation’s founding principle of religious freedom. President Trump’s Muslim Ban is in direct opposition to American principles and sends yet another prejudiced message to Muslim-Americans, refugees and immigrants. His ban serves only to incite recruiting for ISIS and undermines efforts to protect our country. This is not who we are as Americans.”
