Senator Collins’ Statement on Revised Immigration Executive Order

Washington, D.C. — Following the release of the President’s revised immigration executive order, U.S. Senator Susan Collins released this statement:

“The President’s new immigration executive order addresses some of the concerns I had with the original ban. For example, the new order now exempts green card and visa holders, permits Iraqi translators and others who assisted our military to enter our country on Special Immigration Visas, and eliminates the ill-conceived religious test that was included in the previous executive order. I will continue to analyze the impact of the executive order.”
