Rep. Jan Schakowsky Statement on Calls to Ban All Muslims From Entering the Country

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–December 8, 2015

Calls to ban all Muslims from entering the United States are nothing short of disgraceful and dangerous. Bigoted remarks aimed at all Muslims displays a level of intolerance that is not only harmful and divisive, but un-American. The Muslims who have immigrated to my district have added to our vibrant culture, by opening businesses and contributing to our community. The only way we defeat terrorism is by remaining true to our values, not giving into the rhetoric of fear and hate.
