MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - All eight of Vermont’s mayors are urging President Donald Trump to rescind the executive order that temporarily bans travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.

In a statement released Monday, The Vermont Mayors Coalition said Vermont and its communities have a “long and proud history of welcoming immigrants and refugees” from all cultures and backgrounds

The mayors say Trump’s order will have far-reaching consequences in the United States and abroad and it will hurt Vermont cities.

They say they believe Vermont is a stronger state because it welcomes people from around the world and they intend to continue the tradition.
