Shelby Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released a statement on President Trump’s modified executive order on our nation’s travel and visa process:

“The safety and security of the American people must be a top priority.  I have always supported a rigorous review of our vetting process for those who cross our nation’s borders, and I am pleased that President Trump has appropriately modified his executive order to achieve this critical goal.  I look forward to working with the Trump Administration and my colleagues in Congress to keep our citizens safe from any individual seeking to enter our nation and do us harm.”
