Engel Statement on Latest District Court Ruling Against President Trump’s Travel Ban

Washington D.C.— Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement on the U.S. District Court ruling which froze President Trump’s latest travel ban:

“In spite of the Administration’s best efforts to repackage a bad idea, yet another judge has deemed the President’s Muslim travel ban unconstitutional. This is turning into a pattern, and it’s no secret why: the policy is blatantly discriminatory and stands completely contrary to our American principles. I applaud U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson’s ruling, but we must continue to fight this dangerous Order on all fronts.”
