California Assembly rejects Trump's executive order on refugees and immigrants

Monday, February 13, 2017

In a debate that both sides agreed was largely symbolic, the California Assembly on Monday ratified a resolution criticizing President Trump's contentious executive order imposing new limits on refugees and other immigrants.

"I believe that this executive order does not improve our national security, but actually weakens it," said Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez (D-Los Angeles), the resolution's author.
