Van Hollen Statement on Trump’s Revised Travel Ban

Today U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen issued the following statement on President Trump's revised travel ban:

"The revised executive order will weaken, not strengthen, the security of Americans by playing into the hands of our enemies. President Trump has engaged in fear-mongering about visitors and refugees from these six countries, and this executive order is now a fake solution to the real security issues we face. We do face real threats from ISIS and need to redouble our efforts to destroy them. Unfortunately, this executive order will hinder, not help, that mission."
