White House Wasteful Border Wall Demands are Harmful, Disgraceful
(WASHINGTON)— Kica Matos, spokesperson for the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), issued the following reaction to the White House’s Demands for wasteful border wall funding:
“The White House continues to play games with the lives of millions of immigrants, threatening the fate of 800,000 immigrant youth. It took the Administration minutes to terminate DACA, but the consequences will impact generations. Children will be forced to grow up without their parents, families will be unable to reunite and the most vulnerable seeking asylum will be left out. This is not a game show, the White House’s callous game playing is harming people’s lives. Thousands of young immigrants have lost the ability to go to work, school and live their lives already, and more are impacted every day.
The White House’s list of immigration demands are a White Supremacist’s dream. It advances an agenda that seeks to make America White again by attacking legal migration and safe communities, building a ridiculous border wall and hiring more agents for a rogue agency that has repeatedly abused its power.
Congress must to do its job and pass a permanent solution for DACA recipients and for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country.
