Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC: On June 26, the United States Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favor of President Trump in the case Trump v. Hawaii. The ruling maintains that President Trump acted lawfully in his executive order to restrict travel from nations that have failed to meet enhanced visa security requirements. Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) issued the following statement in support of the decision:

“The national security of the United States is President Trump’s top priority. I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the President’s constitutional authority to implement national security and immigration policies that keep the American people safe. The countries affected by this decision have consistently failed to meet visa security requirements, and worse yet, some of these governments openly sponsor terrorist activities. The Supreme Court ruled today in favor of our national security, and on the side of the Constitution.”
