Statement from Mayor Bill de Blasio on Federal Appeals Court’s ruling to uphold suspension of White House refugee and travel ban.

“The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals just said, ‘No you can’t,’ to the Trump Administration and its un-American travel and refugee bans. Here in New York – the safest big city in America – we will always protect our neighbors, no matter where they came from or when they got here. Those are our values.”

Mayor of New York City
