Senator Harris Statement on 9th Circuit Court Ruling Against Reinstating Muslim Ban

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Following the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against reinstating President Trump's Muslim Ban, Senator Kamala D. Harris, a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs and former California Attorney General, released the following statement:

"America draws strength from its reliance on the rule of law and the integrity of an independent judiciary. I wholeheartedly agree with the Ninth Circuit's decision which recognizes this administration has utterly failed to justify the tremendous harm this ban has inflicted on our country. The Trump administration's reckless creation and implementation of this ban has jeopardized our national security and undermined our nation's core values as a place of refuge for those fleeing violence and seeking freedom."
