Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s travel ban:

“President Trump’s decision to rescind his January 27, 2017 travel ban confirms what we all knew: the travel ban was unconstitutional and un-American. It represents a major victory for the thousands of lawful permanent residents and visa holders in California, as well as all those across our nation who cherish our Constitution, diversity, tolerance, and fairness.

My team is carefully reviewing the legality of the Administration’s revised ban. We will do everything in our power to make sure the revised ban respects our Constitution and our way of life. No one will or should soon forget the Trump Administration’s multiple, public promises to ban Muslims from the country.”
