Durbin Statement On Supreme Court Ruling On Trump's Muslim Ban

WASHINGTON—U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold President Trump’s revised Executive Order banning travel from certain Muslim-majority countries:

I agree with Justice Sotomayor: this decision upholding President Trump’s Muslim Travel Ban fails to safeguard the principle of religious neutrality embedded in our Bill of Rights. History will not be kind to this president’s policies or the Supreme Court Justices who lent their names to this troubling ruling.
