Napolitano’s Statement on White House Immigration Proposals
(EL MONTE, CA) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano released the following statement after the White House published their immigration proposals:
“President Trump repeatedly told DREAMers not to worry, that they would be taken care of, and that he would show them great heart. These were false assurances then, and his promise to work toward a permanent solution for DACA doesn’t mean a thing now.
“After cruelly terminating the program in September the President continues to ignore the overwhelming majority of Americans who support these young immigrants and their continued existence in the only country they have called home. He is instead cowering to the most extreme, anti-immigrant voices in his White House and his party, whose proposals seek to inject fear into immigrant communities, frighten families and children, and drive immigrants farther underground.
“Let us end the uncertainty surrounding DREAMers and firmly reject these xenophobic policies.”
