Bennet Statement on Revised Travel Ban

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today released the following statement on President Trump's revised executive order, which temporarily bans refugees and certain immigrants:

"The President's revised executive order does nothing to fix its most fundamental flaw - that it undermines American values," Bennet said. "The temporary ban continues to contradict our nation's proud history of welcoming people, regardless of religion, and does nothing to bolster our national security.

"The President should abandon this attempt to fulfill an absurd campaign promise. Rather than doubling down on an order that invokes fear, the President should focus on a real plan to reform our tax system, rebuild our infrastructure, and create good-paying jobs for the American people."
