OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR — Statement by Gov. David Y. Ige on travel ban arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court

Posted on Apr 25, 2018 in Latest Department News, Office of the Governor Press Releases

The U.S. Supreme Court heard heated arguments on Travel Ban 3.0 today. We hope the Court makes the right decision – that the ban violates the U.S. Constitution’s command against religious discrimination. As we await the Court’s ruling on this contentious issue, I can assure you that I will do all I can to continue to reinforce Hawai‘i’s values of inclusion and diversity. There is no room for discrimination. The Aloha spirit will prevail.


— Gov. David Ige
