The National Immigration Forum, a Washington, DC-based immigration advocacy organization, celebrated the decision against the travel ban.
National Immigration Forum Executive Director Ali Noorani said in a statement released right after the decision was released that it was actually the travel and refugee bans of the Trump Administration that threatened national security.
"Beyond their likely unlawfulness, refugee and travel bans send the wrong statement to the world. They undermine our national security, not to mention our values, and they hurt our economy," stated Noorani.
"Our safety and security are priority No. 1. The administration can and should review its vetting procedures. But these proposed bans are not the way to prioritize real threats at home and abroad."
