Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson Releases Statement after Detentions at Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport (DFW) Due to Unconstitutional Muslim Ban
Dallas, TX - (Sunday, January 29, 2017) - Today, Congresswoman Eddie Bernice Johnson released the following statement after detentions at Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport (DFW) and across the nation due to the unconstitutional Muslim ban:
“I stand in solidarity with the refugees, immigrants and their loved ones who are being banned from entering our country. This does not represent the America that is made up of immigrants or the values we cherish, one being freedom of religion.
“Yesterday across the nation and here at the Dallas/Forth Worth International Airport many people were being detained and were not allowed entry into our country. This was all a result of the most recent executive action signed by President Trump banning individuals from seven dominant Muslim countries to enter our country. During this time there is a lot of confusion and families being torn apart. I am aware and waiting to be fully briefed on how many people are being detained at the DFW airport, so my staff and I can fully provide assistance and guidance to those who need it.”
