INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- The federal court order stopping Pres. Donald Trump's executive order on immigration was praised by Rep. André Carson (D-Ind.) Sunday. Carson is the first Muslim on the House Permanent Select Committee in Intelligence.
“I applaud the injunction against President Trump’s Executive Order and call on the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Customs and Border Protection to respect the ruling. Congress will continue to debate immigration and national security, but now is not the time for prolonged partisan negotiations. Thousands of families are having their lives disrupted by this Executive Order and they need our help now.
“I am preparing a letter to the Trump Administration to call for a reversal of this Executive Order. My office has spoken with officials from Indianapolis’ Refugee Resettlement Agencies and I plan on continuing to work with them to ensure our city can offer a home for those seeking peace and safety.”
