Ellison on travel ban: 'Just because it's legal doesn't make it right'
by Eugene Scott
The possibility that President Donald Trump's revised travel ban may pass legal muster doesn't make it ethical, Rep. Keith Ellison said Friday.
"Just because it's legal doesn't make it right," Ellison, the first Muslim elected to Congress, told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day."
The new travel ban came weeks after Trump's original executive order was temporarily blocked by federal courts. The revised order removes language in the original that indefinitely banned Syrian refugees and called for prioritizing the admission of refugees who are religious minorities in their home countries. It also bans immigration from six Muslim-majority countries.
