Burgess Statement on the Reinstatement of President Trump's Executive Order
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Chairman of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision to temporarily reinstate President Trump’s executive order on refugees.
“My top priority has always been to protect Americans at home and to do so by securing our borders. President Trump has taken steps well within his authority, and based off intelligence gathered in the Obama Administration, to keep our country safe. The Supreme Court has upheld the rule of law and recognized, for the time being, President Trump’s authority to protect Americans and strengthen our national security. I believe this is a positive step forward in ensuring our borders are protected against threats to North Texans and the American people.”
