The U.S. Supreme Court heard heated arguments on Travel Ban 3.0 today. We hope the Court makes the right decision – that the ban violates the U.S. Constitution’s command against religious discrimination. As we await the Court’s ruling on this contentious issue, I can assure you that I will do all I can to continue to reinforce Hawai‘i’s values of inclusion and diversity. There is no room for discrimination. The Aloha spirit will prevail.

We are absolutely seeking federal assistance and will make requests for all programs that we qualify for. That will be determined by the county, state and federal assessment currently being conducted. We have already authorized the use of state funds and resources to take swift action and respond as quickly as possible to the community’s needs. #HIGov #HINews #KauaiFlooding
