Leahy, Sanders, Welch Commend Governor & Other State Leaders For Legislation On Trump Executive Orders


Location: Unknown

In a joint statement, Vermont's Congressional Delegation -- Senator Patrick Leahy, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and Representative Peter Welch (D-Vt.) -- commented on State of Vermont legislative efforts to protect the constitutional rights of Vermonters:

"We commend Governor Scott, Attorney General Donovan and our state's legislative leaders for their commitment to protecting the rights of all Vermonters. Our offices have taken hundreds of calls from Vermonters who are deeply concerned about the impact of the Executive Orders coming from the Trump Administration. The idea of creating federal registries based on religion or national origin harkens back to dark chapters in history and is an affront to our nation's values. We also appreciate the efforts to clarify the duties of state and local law enforcement agencies and officers, in relation to federal law enforcement. Today's announcement is another demonstration that Vermonters will not allow our constitutional rights to be trampled in the name of national security."
