Statement on President Trump’s immigration travel ban

​As businesses committed to moving Oregon forward together, the Portland Business Alliance and Oregon Business Council are troubled by the breadth of President Trump’s executive order restricting immigration and re-entry into the United States of citizens of certain countries.
As businesses committed to moving Oregon forward together, the Portland Business Alliance and Oregon Business Council are troubled by the breadth of President Trump’s executive order restricting immigration and re-entry into the United States of citizens of certain countries. Diversity makes us stronger and more competitive in the global economy, and we recognize that our nation is built on the hard work and talent of generations of people born throughout the world. 
  
The Alliance and Oregon Business Council encourage elected leaders to thoughtfully balance the nation’s security interest with our rich tradition of being a beacon of opportunity to people regardless of nationality or religion.
