Valley Residents Protest Devin Nuñes and Trump

Hundreds of Valley residents gathered at the office of Congressman Devin Nuñes in Clovis Wednesday to protest his support of President Trump’s executive order banning Muslims from coming into the United States from seven designated countries. Nuñes is Chair of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and a member of the Trump transition team. He issued a statement on January 29 stating that refugees from certain war-torn countries pose a national security threat, calling the executive order “a common-sense measure”. Participants of the action called upon Nuñes to rescind his statement. Pacifica’s Vic Bedoian reports from Clovis.
