Menendez on Trump Administration’s Immigration Raids

 
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Senators Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), the Highest Ranking Latino in Congress, released the following statement ahead of the planned deportation raids for this weekend:

“The Trump Administration’s planned deportation raids this weekend will not only tear undocumented parents away from their American children but also indiscriminately force family, friends and other bystanders into an already overburdened detention system. Instead of working to solve our challenges at the border or advance real and lasting comprehensive immigration reform, President Trump has once again shown his primary goal is to strike fear in immigrant communities for political gain. I stand with the people of New Jersey against this heartless mass deportation agenda that separates families and will continue fighting for the kind of commonsense, humane immigration policies that will make our nation safer, our economy stronger, and uphold our American values.”
