STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Supreme Court Decisions on the Travel Ban and Crisis Pregnancy Centers
June 26, 2018
"Today’s Supreme Court decisions strike at the heart of what it means to be an Angeleno and an American. The ruling on the travel ban condones discrimination against Muslims worldwide. That is wrong and it is inconsistent with our nation's values. As the city with the most people impacted by the ban, L.A. can assure you: we can keep our country safe without abandoning the ideals that define who we are.
The Court’s other decision on so-called crisis pregnancy centers deals a significant setback for women’s health. All pregnant women deserve access to quality care and honest counseling to help them make the right decision for themselves and their families.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
