ALGOP Chairman Lathan’s Statement on the Supreme Court’s Ruling to Uphold President Trump’s Travel Ban 

Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan made the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold President Trump’s travel ban:

“The Constitution has clearly given a president the authority to implement executive orders. The travel ban pertaining to several countries was in that scope. This is not a policy on discrimination- it is a policy on the security of our nation. Chief Justice John Roberts was correct when he authored that the ruling was ‘squarely within the scope of presidential authority’ under our federal laws.”

“We applaud the Supreme Court’s decision on this matter.”
