Napolitano Condemns President Trump’s Executive Orders on Immigration
(Washington, DC) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano condemned President Donald Trump’s executive orders that would build an American taxpayer-funded border wall, increase funding for detention centers on the border, and block federal funding to sanctuary cities, issuing the following statement:
“Today’s actions by President Trump, while not surprising, are the wrong direction and an attack on our nation, which was built by immigrants. He is proving in his first week that he is not a leader who cares about America’s people. Targeting immigrant and refugee communities is not going to solve our problems, and it will hurt our economy.
“We need policies that embrace our values of acceptance and love of country, not ones that seek to divide us by spreading fear and hate. We stand united against these anti-immigrant policies, will do everything we can to protect immigrant families, and we will fight to deliver comprehensive immigration reform once and for all.”
