President Trump’s Muslim ban is Islamophobic and betrays American Values
Today, Assembly Joint Resolution (AJR) 2, introduced by Assemblymember Marc Levine (D-Marin County) in December was referred out of the Assembly Rules Committee to the Assembly Judiciary Committee. AJR 2 calls on Congress and the President to reject immigration discrimination and efforts to build a wall between the United States and Mexico.
“President Trump’s executive order to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States and drastically reduce refugee resettlement is Islamophobic and betrays American values and must be withdrawn,” said Assemblymember Marc Levine. “I am grateful our founders crafted the Constitution with co-equal branches of government, blessing our republic with checks and balances on power. The founder’s wisdom was reinforced this weekend when the courts issued a stay on this unconstitutional executive order on immigration.”
