Press Release

Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued the following statement on President Biden’s Executive Order rescinding the Trump administration’s “Muslim ban” policy:

"Trump's racist "Muslim ban" was a disgraceful policy that served no purpose but to stoke anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment, and I am glad that President Biden has rescinded it. The former President began his Presidency with attacks on immigrant communities through bigoted rhetoric and cruel policies like this. On Day One of the Biden administration, it's clear that America will once again embrace the rich diversity that makes us stronger."
