SIMPSON ISSUES STATEMENT ON EXECUTIVE ORDER ON ADMISSIONS TO THE U.S.
Washington, January 30, 2017
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson the following statement on President Trump’s executive order on admissions to the United States:
“The President is fulfilling his duty and promise to evaluate the screening process for those attempting to enter our country to ensure that these individuals are indeed safe and pose no threat to us. However, the Administration could have and should have disseminated the details and enforcement guidelines of the Executive Order in a more effective manner to minimize the unintended consequences of this change in policy. I am glad to see that the Administration has already taken steps to clarify these guidelines, and I hope all other errors in implementation of this order will be immediately addressed.”
