NEW YORK, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AJC remains concerned by President Trump's revised executive order on immigration and refugees. While it should be noted that some of the worst features of the prior executive order have fortunately been rectified, the fact remains that the temporary suspension of admission of all refugees, the sharp reduction in the overall number of refugees that the U.S. will accept, and the blanket temporary ban on immigrants from named countries run contrary to the values our nation holds dear. Moreover, these measures do not effectively address the legitimate security threats we face.
