Jan 30, 2017 Issues: Foreign Affairs

Washington, DC – U.S. Representative Mike Doyle (D-PA-14) issued the following statement today in response to the Executive Order issued by President Donald J. Trump on Friday.

“I am deeply disappointed with POTUS for his recent order banning not only all refugees from around the world, but all visitors from a number of countries.

“He's also harming citizens of those countries who have lived and worked in this country for years but are out of the country for work or vacation, and neighbors in our own communities who have come to make their lives and our region better.

“Our nation has long welcomed refugees fleeing famine and oppression. This act flies in the face of our values as Americans and our history as a refuge for those in need.”
