Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court upholding the Trump Administration Executive Order to strengthen protections for the safety and security of Americans in the homeland:

“It is the federal government’s duty to protect the American people and safeguard our homeland. The United States is a target for terrorism, making heightened scrutiny and even limitations on travel necessary at times. I’m also encouraged that Chad has been removed from the list for working to improve their domestic security. I look forward to working with the Administration to ensure we continue every effort to keep our country safe.”
