The Supreme Court's decision to allow portions of President Trump's Muslim and refugee ban to take effect sends a terrible message to the world, does nothing to make America safer, and disregards our national values. This rash, discriminatory policy ultimately undermines our ability to fight terrorism, as it will certainly serve as a recruiting tool for those who would do us harm. It is my hope that the Supreme Court will conclude that this clear religious ban is discriminatory and inconsistent with our Constitution.

U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court decision to review President Trump’s Muslim and refugee travel ban, and to allow parts of the lower court injunctions against it to be implemented, pending its review:
