Raimondo's Statement on Trump Travel Ban

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Governor Gina M. Raimondo today released this statement following the Supreme Court's decision upholding President Trump's travel ban:

"Rhode Island was founded on the idea that freedom of worship is an inherent human right. I'm disappointed that the Supreme Court sided in favor of President Trump's immoral and unnecessary Muslim ban. Our state has always been strengthened by the contribution of immigrants. It's now more important than ever that we show the world that there's a place for everyone in Rhode Island. No matter your race, where you're from, your immigration status or who you love-you are welcome here."
