Moulton Condemns Trump’s Executive Order on Refugees

Moulton: "I am ashamed that he is our president."

 

Salem, MA – Today, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s executive order on U.S. refugee policy. Moulton says that Trump’s policies put our troops’ lives at risk, empower our enemies, and “do not put America first.”

 

"President Trump is leading our country out of fear instead of facts. His executive orders banning refugees and immigrants from some Muslim majority countries to the United States play right into the hands of our enemies. ISIS has already used his statements to help recruit new suicide bombers, and you can bet Trump’s policies will help inspire attacks against Americans both at home and abroad.

"His policies literally put our troops' lives at risk—I’ve heard this loud and clear when I have visited them overseas. They also prove he has zero understanding of our country’s values and no intention of defending our Constitution.

"We are a nation of immigrants, and America is stronger when we welcome the refugees of our enemies. These policies do not put America first. I am ashamed that he is our president," said Moulton.
