“Muslim Ban Betrays Our Values”, Say Congressional Democrats In Press Conference From SCOTUS Steps

Share This:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and leading Congressional Democrats held a press conference last night on the steps of the US Supreme Court to speak in opposition to Donald Trump’s executive orders targeting immigrants, Muslims, and refugees.

The Congressional Democrats were joined by two refugees affected by the executive orders, including one tearful woman who is now unsure of when she will again be able to reunite with her family in Iraq. Two of the speakers were New York’s Rep. Jerrold Nadler and Rep. Nydia Velazquez, who made headlines after helping to free one man from detention at JFK.
