Washington, DC - Today the United States Supreme Court ruled on Hawaii v. Trump upholding President Trump’s executive order barring individuals from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. Representative Dina Titus of Nevada’s First Congressional District released the following statement on the ruling: 

“Today’s decision upholds a misguided xenophobic ban that does nothing to make us safer. Banning the people of an entire religion from immigrating to the U.S. is a betrayal of our nation’s founding principles of religious freedom and tolerance. Not only does the executive order keep out the most vulnerable, it has deterred international visitors and impacted the tourism industry in Las Vegas. I was proud to join my colleagues in filing a bicameral amicus brief to the Supreme Court in March to demonstrate my strong opposition to this harmful executive order. I will continue to fight the Administration’s actions and work to end this ban.”
