PRICE TAKING ACTION TO OPPOSE REFUGEE EXECUTIVE ORDER

January 29, 2017
Press Release

Congressman David E. Price (NC-04) announced the following action to fight back against President Trump's order on refugees.

UPDATE: Price is an original co-sponsor of Rep. Zoe Lofgren's Statute of Liberty Values Act 2.0 (SOLVe 2.0) of 2017, which would repeal the "revised" version of President Trump's executive order.

"I have heard an outpouring of concern and outrage about the President's executive order, which violates our most basic constitutional principles. Over the coming days, I will take the following action. Tomorrow afternoon, I will meet with refugee families and organizations in Durham to discuss the impact on our local community. Tomorrow evening, I will join House and Senate leaders on the steps of the United States Supreme Court to call for the order to be repealed. As soon as Congress gavels back into session, I will also co-sponsor legislation to repeal it and defund its enforcement.

"As a senior member of the House subcommittee responsible for immigration funding, I expect a thorough accounting from White House officials about the justification for and execution of President Trump's order, and I plan to hold the Trump Administration to account during the coming weeks."
