(SACRAMENTO) – Lt. Governor Newsom issued the following statement on Trump v. Hawaii, after the US Supreme Court voted in a 5-4 ruling to uphold President Trump’s travel ban:
“President Trump’s travel ban is government sponsored discrimination – a thinly veiled attempt to target individuals based on religion and ethnicity, and it is monumentally disappointing that a majority on the United States Supreme Court refused to strike it down.”
