Hirono Statement on Muslim Ban Ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Mazie K. Hirono (D-Hawaii) released the following statement on the Supreme Court ruling upholding the President’s Muslim ban in Trump v. Hawaii

“Today is a dark day for our country. Every time our country has singled out a minority group for discriminatory treatment, we have been proven very, very wrong. The Supreme Court’s decision in Trump v. Hawaii will be no different. By ignoring the President’s clear intent to discriminate against Muslims, the Court handed the President unfettered power to continue to target minorities.”
