Louisiana congressmen speak on Trump's travel ban
WASHINGTON – Congressman Clay Higgins released his statement Sunday regarding President Donald Trump’s executive order placing travel bans on people from seven Middle East countries.
According to a KATC report, Higgins called the ban reasonable.
“Radical Islamic terror should not be a partisan issue,” Higgins told KATC. “The president’s executive order for a short-term restriction on visa entries from seven countries, that are known to foster terrorists, combined with a systematic review of our immigration and vetting procedure, is reasonable.”
Higgins is the newly sworn in U.S. Representative for Louisiana’s 3rd congressional district.
U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy gave timid support for Trump’s executive order in a statement on Facebook.
“I am pleased to see that this order is being refined to address this and I look forward to it being further refined,” Cassidy said.
U.S. Senator John Kennedy and U.S. Representative Garret Graves have not released a statement on the executive order.
