STATEMENT FROM MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL
The legal grounds of the first travel ban were questionable at best, and today’s iteration is nothing more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing – different packaging intended to achieve the same result. It is a betrayal of our nation’s values that our government would slam the door on refugees fleeing war, death and unimaginable conditions, that our government would divide families, and that our government would attempt to exclude people based on their religion. This executive order runs contrary to the ideas America was founded upon and the ideals that have made America a beacon of hope around the world.
第一次旅行禁令的法律依据至今为止仍然是个问题，今天的新版本无非又是一只披着羊皮的狼而已 – 尽管有不同的包装，但仍然是为了达到相同的结果。它这是对我们国家价值观的背叛，我们的政府将扼杀那些逃离战争，死亡和难以想象的条件的难民的门希望，将他们关在门外。我们的政府将会分让家庭分崩离析，并试图排斥那些有其他信仰的人。这种行政命令违背了美国建立的思想基础，而这个思想正是使美国成为全世界的希望的基础。
