Media Statement on New Executive Order on Refugee Admissions Michael Hopkins, CEO, Jewish Family Service of San Diego

Jewish Family Service of San Diego continues to believe that stopping refugee resettlement, for any period of time, undermines our nation’s founding principles and turns away those seeking safety, freedom, hope and opportunity.

There is nothing “temporary” about this new executive order on refugees. The language of the ban may have changed slightly, but the result for refugees is still the same. Tens of thousands of refugees will remain in danger after they had already been approved to come to the United States.
