Dem Sen Hirono: ‘Haven’t Studied All the Provisions of’ New Travel Ban, ‘But It’s Still Basically a Muslim Ban’

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf,” Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) stated of President Trump’s revised travel ban, “I haven’t studied all of the provisions of it, but it’s still basically a Muslim ban.”

said, “Well, he made some small changes, apparently, to that they — a very sweeping travel ban that he issued earlier. I haven’t studied all of the provisions of it, but it’s still basically a Muslim ban. It’s still a ban based on one’s religion, and every time our country has targeted a minority group for discriminatory treatment, we have been proven to be very, very wrong, and the president is wrong in this instance.”

When asked about the argument that most Muslims aren’t impacted by the ban, including the largest Muslim country of Indonesia, responded, “Well, isn’t that still a Muslim ban? isn’t it still a ban based on one’s religion? So, whether you’re doing it with one country or several, it’s still a Muslim ban.”
