Congressman Evans Statement on SCOTUS upholding Trump's Travel Ban

June 26, 2018
Press Release

“This morning, the Supreme Court upheld President Trump and his Administration’s divisive and discriminatory MuslimBan.

While I’m incredibly disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision, our fight is far from over. The city of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection will continue to welcome all nationalities with open arms regardless of the cruel actions led by Trump and his colleagues.

As your Member of Congress, I will continue to voice my opposition any time President Trump and his Administration enact policies that directly harm Philadelphians or immigrants across the nation. We are living through an age of political uncertainty and upheaval, but we cannot succumb to despair--we must remain strong and fight to defend our democracy.
