Mayor Lee’s Statement on Restraining Order Against Travel Ban

Mayor Edwin M. Lee issued this statement on the Executive Order banning travel from six countries:

“I commend today’s decision to grant a temporary restraining order against the Administration’s Executive Order. Just like the first Executive Order, this latest attempt to target individuals from Muslim-majority countries has been halted.

In San Francisco we welcome millions of visitors each year, and we are proud to be the home of immigrants trying to build better lives for themselves and their families. We stand side-by-side with our Muslim friends and will continue to fight to protect the rights of all our residents.”
