Statement from AIJAC National Chairman Mark Leibler AC and Executive Director Dr. Colin Rubenstein AM on President Trump's recent immigration orders:

"It is important not to over-react by taking steps that are excessive, misplaced or discriminatory in the vital fight against terrorism, including Islamist extremism, or the end result will be both morally unacceptable and counterproductive - of which, unfortunately, the recent, precipitous Trump Administration executive orders relating to immigration are clear examples."
