Gov. Polis Statement on Proposed Travel Ban

Friday, January 31, 2020

DENVER — Governor Jared Polis released the following statement on the Trump administration’s proposed travel ban on six additional countries. 

“This is just another attempt by the Trump administration to close the United States off from the rest of the world, to our own detriment. Our state is a famous destination for students, tourists, businesses and people from around the world who want to experience our amazing Colorado way of life. Preventing our friends and family members from Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Nigeria, Sudan and Tanzania from coming here hurts our state. America is at its best when we open our minds and communities, and demonstrate our compassion.”
