Senator Michael Gianaris on Donald Trump's Executive Order

Senator Gianaris speaks at a rally in "Little Egypt" in Astoria

Senator Michael Gianaris said, “Donald Trump’s new travel ban is just as un-American and illegal as his first and the issuance of his divisive Executive Order does significant damage to our democracy and the values we hold dear. As I first proposed weeks ago, the Port Authority should not participate in enforcing this ban nor lend Port Authority resources for its implementation. The enactment of my legislation prohibiting such involvement is crucial to preserving our way of life and keeping immigrant families together.”
