Statement in response to President Trump’s travel ban on individuals from certain Muslim-majority countries and the halt to the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program

On Friday, January 27th, President Trump issued an executive order to halt individuals from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., suspending the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program, and indefinitely barring Syrian refugees from entering the U.S. The executive order also drastically cut the total number of refugees who can enter the U.S. this year from 110,000 to 50,000 individuals.

IMPRINT strongly opposes this travel ban and believes that it undermines our nation’s prosperity, security, and standing in the world.
