FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Feb. 9, 2017



STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX –  Democratic House Leader Rebecca Rios, D-Phoenix (District 27), released the following statement regarding a federal appeals court decision to uphold the temporary restraining order against the president's travel ban on people from seven Muslim nations.

"The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals today acted, as the courts are supposed to, as a necessary check to the constitutional overreach by President Trump’s unlawful and un-American executive order. This decision means that, for now, people seeking refuge from horrific conditions will not be turned away, and that families separated by this discriminatory policy can reunite. Today’s win is just a step in the larger fight for justice. We cannot stop now."

En Español

"El Corte de Apelaciones actuó hoy, como un cheque necesaria, de el uso exceso de la orden ejecutiva que es ilegal y contra los valores de los EE.UU. Esta decisión significa que, por ahora, las personas que buscan refugio de condiciones horribles no serán rechazadas, que las familias separadas por esta política discriminatoria pueden reunirse. La victoria de hoy es sólo un paso en la lucha más grande por la justicia. No podemos parar."
