U.S. Representative Val Demings

Representing the 10th District of Florida

SCOTUS Muslim Ban Ruling

June 26, 2018
Press Release

ORLANDO, FL – Today, Rep. Val Demings (FL-10) commented on the Supreme Court’s ruling on President Trump’s discriminatory Muslim ban.

Said Rep. Demings, “This was not a Muslim issue, this was an American issue. Our communities are strengthened by the diversity of our brothers, sisters, and neighbors. We work together, invent and learn together, grow our economy and enrich our society together, raise our children together. We share the same joys and pains in a community we call home. If Muslims can be targeted today, who is next?

“I am shocked that the Supreme Court chose to disregard President Trump’s countless public statements of bigotry and hatred.

“While I am disappointed at today’s decision, this is only one instance of a massive campaign throughout this administration to make discrimination the law of the land. It falls once again to Congress to hold this Administration accountable. Perhaps my colleagues will find the political courage to stop the Administration’s dangerous and reckless anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim policies.”
