Governor Ige’s statement on today’s ruling by the United States Supreme Court on the travel ban

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 26, 2018

 

“Many of Hawaiʻi’s families vividly remember experiencing unjust discrimination on the basis of race and national origin. Our state will continue to be a check on this president’s irrational fear of travelers from predominantly Muslim countries. Sadly, the Supreme Court’s decision does not reflect the American values of inclusion, freedom, and opportunity. And it does not reflect the Aloha Spirit that Hawaiʻi exemplifies.”
