PRICE STATEMENT ON REFUGEE ORDER

January 28, 2017
Press Release

Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) released the following statement about President Trump's executive order on refugees.

"I condemn in the strongest possible terms President Trump's shameful order on refugees, which flies in the face of our most deeply held democratic values. I have been outraged by many of Mr. Trump's comments on the campaign trail and his actions as president, but this executive order is especially horrifying. We must never forget that we are a nation of immigrants, founded as a refuge for the persecuted and oppressed. I will fight to ensure that our constitutional commitment to equality, inclusion, and freedom of religion is protected against this unprecedented attack."
