Adams Responds to Trump’s Executive Order

Jun 20, 2018
Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Today, Congresswoman Alma Adams (D-NC) released the following statement on President Trump’s Executive Order regarding family separation at the border.

“President Trump has consistently failed America with his immigration policies,” said Congresswoman Adams.  "His unconstitutional travel ban, offensive “s-hole” comments, outrageous border wall demands, and now his barbaric family separation practice proves Trump’s immigration policies are rooted in hatred.  Today’s executive order is a mere optic - a band-aid on a deep self-inflected wound created solely by this administration.  This order fails to return the more than 2,000 children that have already been ripped from their families and it does nothing to address our broken immigration system.  In the absence of Presidential leadership, Speaker Ryan must work in a bipartisan fashion to bring an end to this Trump made crisis.”
