# Against Muslim Ban

In a press conference, Steve Kerr said
As someone whose family member is a victim of terrorism, having lost my father–if we’re trying to combat terrorism by banishing people from coming to this country, we’re recalling going against the principles of what this country is about and creating fear. It’s the wrong way to go about it. If anything, we could be breeding anger and terror, and so I’m completely against what’s happening. I think it’s shocking. I think it’s a horrible idea and I feel for everyone who is affected, families are being torn apart. And I worry in the big picture what this means to the security of the world. It’s going completely opposite. You want to solve terror, you want to solve crime, it’s not the way to do it.
