BOSTON (AP) — Members of Massachusetts all-Democratic congressional delegation say they’ll keep fighting President Donald Trump’s travel ban on visitors from mostly Muslim countries despite a Supreme Court decision upholding the ban.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Tuesday the American people know the ban isn’t right, calling it a form of religious discrimination.READ MORE: UMass To Freeze In-State Tuition For Second Straight Year
Rep. Joe Kennedy criticized the decision in front of the Supreme Court, calling the decision heartbreaking. He said it’s up to Congress to oppose Trump’s “hateful rhetoric” and clarify that denying entry to the nation based on religion defies the ideals that have made the country strong.
Reps. Katherine Clark, Michael Capuano and Seth Moulton were also among those members of the delegation criticizing the ruling. Clark faulted the court for turning its back on the country’s commitment to religious liberty.READ MORE: 4 Massachusetts Chocolate Shops Named Among The Country’s Best
