Thompson to DHS: Produce Clear Guidance on Travel Ban

(WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Ranking Member of the Committee on Homeland Security, sent a letter to Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly regarding the imminent temporary reinstatement of President Trump’s revised travel ban.  Ranking Member Thompson released the following statement with the letter:

“Chaos ensued after President Trump’s first travel ban was hastily implemented in January when CBP officers in the field lack proper implementation guidance. Given that the Administration plans to begin enforcement of the revised travel ban within the next 72 hours, it is imperative that the Department avoid past mistakes and provide prompt, clear, and consistent guidance to CBP personnel and the public.”
