Press Release

Washington, DC – Congressman Serrano today released the following statement on President Trump’s release of a revised executive order on immigration:

“President Trump thinks that tweaking and repackaging his Muslim and refugee ban is the solution to bypass our nation’s Constitution. The updated executive order on immigration is as unconstitutional, discriminatory, and misguided as the first one and won’t be upheld in federal courts.

Trump claims his extreme measures are necessary keep our country safe, but he has yet to demonstrate any legitimate justification for targeting and banning individuals from primarily Muslim countries.  His efforts actually make our country less safe by serving as a recruitment tool for terrorists abroad,” said Congressman Serrano.
