Los Alamos County Councilor

Editor’s note: Councilor Pete Sheehey delivered the following statement at Tuesday’s County Council work session in White Rock:

President Trump’s Jan. 27 Executive Order suspending visits or immigration to the US from seven Muslim-majority countries for three months, and stopping processing or entry of any refugees for four months, has caused tremendous controversy.

The courts will decide whether or not this order violates anyone’s rights to due process or equal protection under the US Constitution and law. I am compelled to speak on this today.
