Mayor Bill De Blasio on the Muslim Ban

On June 26, 2018, De Blasio voiced his concerns about President Trump’s Muslim ban in a series of tweets, saying:

Donald Trump’s travel ban is institutionalized Islamophobia, promoted under the guise of national security. Banning people from our country on the basis of religion is an affront to our founding ideals.”

“With this decision, the highest court in the land has sent a message of exclusion and division across the globe. As Donald Trump tries to build walls, New York City will continue to welcome people from all over the world to our shores, from all faith traditions.”

“Our values have helped make our city the safest big city in the United States – and they are what make America great.”
