Press Release

Today, Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky issued the following statement after the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals voted unanimously against reinstating President Trump’s unconstitutional Muslim Ban:

“I am relieved that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled to maintain the nationwide stay against President Trump’s Muslim Ban, finding in a unanimous decision that the ban presents ‘significant constitutional questions.’ President Trump’s best efforts to violate our Constitution and undermine the independent judicial branch have been unsuccessful. This ruling keeps our country open to families seeking refuge in our country. The fight is not over, but today’s decision is a step in the right direction. We must continue to stand up for the diversity and compassion that keep America strong and safe.”
