Former President Obama 'heartened' by engagement over Trump immigration ban

Updated 1952 GMT (0352 HKT) January 30, 2017

(CNN) - Statement from Kevin Lewis, spokesman for former President Obama:

President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country. In his final official speech as president, he spoke about the important role of citizen and how all Americans have a responsibility to be the guardians of our democracy -- not just during an election but every day.

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.

With regard to comparisons to President Obama's foreign policy decisions, as we've heard before, the President fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion.

1. And we're heartened by President Obama

He's welcome to lead the resistance, any time.
