Congresswoman Beatty Responds to Impact of Trump Muslim Ban Executive Order

COLUMBUS, OH- Today, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued a follow up statement on President Trump's exeuctive order barring legal permanent residents, immigrants and refugees from entering the United States:

“The emergency injunction blocking President Trump’s unconscionable executive order barring Muslims from entering the United States must be enforced immediately. In just two short day, this executive order has ripped apart countless families—including Ohio State student Mohamad Zandian and his wife, Parisa Fasihianfard, who was previously detained at JFK International Airport—and slams the door to freedom and opportunity for millions of immigrant families, refugees, and lawful permanent residents. I stand with the ACLU, my Congressional colleagues and all those pushing back against President Trump’s Muslim ban."
