Senator David Perdue Comments On Court’s Action To Reinstate President Trump’s National Security Directive

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to reinstate much of President Trump’s executive order to improve national security:

“From day one, President Trump and his national security team took swift action to protect Americans by placing a temporary pause on admissions to the U.S. from countries that pose national security concerns. Today, the Supreme Court decided to allow President Trump’s directive to be largely implemented and hear appeals later this year on lower court rulings relating to that directive. The world is a very dangerous place and the President is right to try to protect Americans.”
