Barack Obama issued his first statement Monday since leaving the White House.

Kevin Lewis, spokesman for former president Barack Obama since his White House departure, said the president is “heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country.”

Friday Donald Trump signed an executive order banning entry of refugees from seven Muslim nations. People have been detained sparking national and worldwide protests.

“Citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake,” Lewis said.
