The leadership of the US Franciscans have issued a statement against the president’s recent travel ban. They say:

The recent actions of President Donald J. Trump regarding the treatment of immigrants and
refugees entering our country have been troubling to a wide ranging group of citizens across the
United States. As Franciscans, we are morally outraged by and resolutely denounce the January 27,
2017 Executive Order addressing the U.S. immigrant and refugee admission program.
