McCollum Comments In Strong Opposition to Trump Deportation Policy

February 22, 2017
Press Release

Congresswoman Betty McCollum made the following comments on President Donald Trump's new deportation policy:

"President Donald Trump's new deportation policy is the start of a war on immigrants. His policy abandons common-sense law enforcement and opens the door to abuse and racial profiling.

"Targeting immigrants indiscriminately, running roughshod over due process, and building a blueprint for mass deportation does nothing to make our communities safer. In fact, it wastes resources, erodes trust in law enforcement, and stigmatizes families who have come to the United States to pursue the American dream.

"President Trump’s policy is just plain wrong. All Americans, including Congressional Republicans, must come together to stop this travesty."
